A Wild Food walk is a fun and safe way to learn how to identify locally found wild leaves, flowers, fruits, nuts and mushrooms depending on the season and show how these can be easily incorporated into your daily diet. In this workshop Dermot Hughes of Forage Ireland will lead a small group of no more than 20 participants around the grounds surrounding Tintern Abbey, in Saltmills. Dermot will identify a variety of edible leaves, flowers and fruit (seasonal) growing wild in the surrounding woods and fields.
“Food and socialising are two of the most fundamental aspects of our lives, and if these are brought together, the feel-good factor is tremendous” Dermot Hughes – Forage Ireland.
Dermot Hughes founded Forage Ireland along with his late wife Mary, to inspire and enable people to live better lives in tune with nature and the earth.
