Join us on Saturday 19th June for a morning of foraging for wild edibles here in Suffolk, and participate in making a lunch from our harvest. Robin Harford of Eat Weeds UK will leading us on a foraging foray in field and on the banks of the estuary, to collect what mother nature has to offer in terms of free, wild, edible plants. After a 3 hour walk we will return to Hill Cottage to prepare lunch from our wild gatherings. In June the banks of the estuary are the best source of wild edibles, with delicacies such as Samphire to sample. Robin is the UK’s leading expert on wild edible foraging and wild plant identification, here is one of the testimonials from his class:
“Wild foods pointed out and carefully described by Robin, combined with histories or anecdotes lend more than charm to a day in the countryside. Confidence increases as he takes one through a meadow bursting with hitherto undiscovered treasures. The meal which sometimes follows is prepared from the bounty collected and prepared by all—a feast of fresh and vibrant salads, hearty soups, pickles and more. The next day I continued to feel satiated—and not just on the food. I felt a new burst of energy, such as I have never had with frozen foods or supermarket veg. Find out for yourself.” – A. R. Korula, PhD
