James Wood from Totally Wild Foraging took us on a Foraging walk in The Carrs on 21st May. We tasted grasses, yarrow, daisies, hogweed seeds and stems, knotweed and hawthorn flower, and talked about rose bay willow herb asparagus. We learned what to do with elderflowers and elderberries when they are available, and ended up with a fantastic picnic of nettle soup which even the youngest children really enjoyed! Who knew what delicious treats there are hidden in The Carrs! James’s Cookbook, for those who are interested, (The Foragers Cookbook) is available on Amazon, and his blog is a great source of seasonal tips.
Join us with James on a Mushroom Day on November 4th: details will be on the website in due course.
