This walk is the second in a series of Oxford foraging walks. This guided walk with Christopher Hope BSc (Hons) Med Hort will introduce you to more than 40 commonly found edible and species. Most of the plants you will meet will be used for both purposes.

If you want a little more than a taste of the wild in your life...this introductory walk is for you! On this 3 hr walk you will unearth a range of forgotten foods, discover a host of new recipes and remedies, and take home bags of inspiration from our hedgerows and waysides to use back home

On the day we will:

-Cover health and safety issues and the law regarding foraging

-Discuss the main plant families of interest to foragers

-Explore and practice the arts of plant identification through a number of simple patterns provided by plants, and by using a small number of keywords for the different plant families of interest to foragers

-Discuss the  numerous culinary and medicinal virtues of our wild plants and delve into their history and folk lore.

-All the while you can enjoy the glorious, ancient setting of Port meadow, the river Thames and the Oxford canal.

All attendees recieve information handouts to help continue their foraging quests.
