March 23rd 2019 – Spring Foraging Walks

Location: Fernhill Farm, Bristol, Mendips

We learnt the basics of foraging with Totally Wild UK, discovering the vast array of edibles that can be found right under our noses! During the Forage we were introduced to a number of edible species and given tips on harvesting and correct identification. We also enjoyed various samples along the way from James's collection of foraged goods!
