On this workshop we will be focusing on all the wild spring plants found growing on the farm. We will spend time discussing the edibility and traditional, modern and herbal uses for each plant and we will also discuss the many different methods of collecting and preserving the wild plants and how we can do this safely and sustainably. There will be cookery demonstrations on how to preserve wild garlic leaves, buds and flowers using five different methods such as lacto fermentation, wild garlic salt, butter and pesto with samples for the participants to take home. There will be nettle seed scones with a selection of wild jams and refreshments on arrival and the walk will be followed by a three course lunch prepared from a combination of Organic home-grown, wild and locally sourced ingredients. Each participant will be emailed a 60 page plant profile after the workshop of all the plants discussed on the day. The plant file includes photographs of each plant with some information on edibility, nutritive content, herbal and traditional uses and some recipes. This workshop is geared towards adults who are new to foraging. Children under 12 are free and welcome but must be supervised at all times, please contact beforehand to confirm numbers. This is an outdoor event so please come prepared in case of wet weather but there is a covered seating area to enjoy the lunch. An email with eircode will be sent out to attendees a week before the event. Phone Julie on 0874172047 for more details.
