Ever eaten wild blackberries or nuts? Then you’ve already taken your first steps on a foraging adventure. If it left you wanting more, why not continue your learning journey safely and sustainably with expert forager, Martin Bailey.
The Community Farm is to host three of Martin’s popular workshops this spring. Complete novices and experienced foragers alike will have an opportunity to explore the organic hedgerows and natural pastures at the spectacular Chew Valley venue, between Bristol and Bath.
A variety of edible species feature at The Farm, including forager favourites, such as elderflower, nettles and sloes, as well as sorrel and fat hen. Once picked, these harvests can be transformed into preserves, soups, salads and cordials.
Following the forage foray, you’ll be refreshed and inspired by a meal made by Martin from the ingredients gathered.
