In this workshop we will forage what is bountiful in our natural environment in the season of Summer. We will be introduced to foraging consciously and sustainably according to the 'Hunter-Gatherer way' by forager and artist Jemima Hall. We will start by identifying some beginners edible foods including leaves, flowers and trees. We discuss our findings and enjoy some wild tea.

We will meet at 1pm at the Saracen Fountain in Alexandra Park, Glasgow, G31 3LJ. The walk will last for 2 hours, finishing at 3pm.

All ages are welcome!

We will be outside, and during our Scottish 'Summer' the weather can be very variable. We advise good shoes for walking off path and a waterproof jacket in case it rains.

Free event. Please contact Cara at [email protected] or 07915781341 with any questions or accessibility needs.
