October Holiday Foraging Walk - Livingston

Sorry, registration has ended.

*Event is now sold out* Autumn is the season of bounty for mushrooms and fungi, yet knowing where to start is the biggest hurdle for those new to foraging. Join me for an afternoon’s stroll around a local woodland discovering the weird and wonderful world of fungi as well as plants, nuts and berries. We will look at how to recognise the environments that particular species are most likely to be found in and build up a step by step method of how to approach an ID. Discover the range of ingredients you can add to your diet and the nutrition that wild food brings. Discuss how sustainability is an essential part of foraging, both for mushrooms as well as plants, nuts and fruits. Look at how wild food can become a complimentary part of a meal while being sympathetic to the environment arround you, and why this is such a key part of the forager's phillosophy. The walk will last 2.5 hours with the option for a cook up and taste of some of our discoveries should the weather allow. With gentle terrain and a slow pace this is suitable for most abilities, and families and children welcome. This walk can be altered to be wheelchair accessable. Please contact with any accessibility requests.
