Autumn Forage Cardiff- Nuts and Berries

Saturday, October 14th 2017

Come and join expert forager, Sasha Ufnowska, on our Autumn Forage in Cardiff walk and enjoy learning about the autumnal wild food larder

 In this foraging adventure, you will discover what is available in the autumn woodland wild food larder. You will learn how to recognise delicious wild food, what to stay away from and how to forage safely and sustainably.

Autumn is the season for nuts, roots, and fruit. We will be looking for rowans, sloes, damsons, rose hips, elderberries, a variety of nuts and roots such as dandelion and burdock. Spend two hours, seeking out wonderful autumnal wild food under Sasha’s knowledgeable and enthusiastic guidance. You will learn how to identify the delectable wild food nature has to offer, how to use the ingredients and how to forage sustainably.  

The forage will take place at Forest Farm, located on the banks of the Taff, just outside Cardiff City centre and just south of the M4 motorway. Forest Farm is a beautiful place to forage, ramble and roam. Sections of the former Glamorganshire Canal still survive here and a wide range of habitats including woodland, scrub, hay meadow, ponds and marshland.

After our forage, we will head back to the warden’s lodge where we will give you lot’s of tips on how to enjoy your foraged finds and for a light lunch featuring foraged food. 

Please bring good outdoor clothes, shoes/boots, and a notebook and pen to take some notes. 

Spaces are limited  to ensure you have a high quality experience.
