Introduction to Wild Edibles: A walk in West Norwood Cemetery

Sunday, 3rd July 2022, 14:00 - 15:30

Introduction to Wild Edibles: A walk in West Norwood Cemetery
Enjoy a unique walk in a peaceful setting, identifying interesting plant and tree species which have been used historically as wild foods.

Book here

Learn how today’s foragers identify, sustainably harvest, and process wild species to use as ingredients in home cooking. Towards the end of the walk we will taste a little pre-made food and drink made from wild ingredients, to demonstrate these fantastic wild forgotten flavours of the past.

What to bring:

  • Bottle of water
  • Suitable clothing and footwear, the walk is fully outside and will go ahead despite the weather!
  • Notebook or camera – you may wish to jot down notes or take photos of species.

Our walking pace will be slow, stopping frequently, and the terrain flat. Please let us know if you have any mobility issues we may need to take into consideration.
