Food at our Feet: Foraging Walk with Tamara Colchester
May 12th, 2019 - 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
The Hamblin Centre, Bosham West Sussex
Tamara is a wild food teacher, who guides people in the old ways of foraging as a route to a simpler, more connected way of life. She specialises in using foraging and wild living as a means of helping those suffering from PTSD, depression and anxiety, as well as those interested in deepening their relationship with the environment and food.
As spring blossoms into summer, this foraging workshop will introduce you to the wild abundance of this special season, as well as the beautiful flowers of May time. We will identify around 15 of the wild edible plants and flowers that have long provided us with both food and medicine. Packed with vitamins and minerals, they are a true superfood, and a magical addition to any soup or salad bowl. You will also be shown a number of the poisonous plants, making sure they are recognised and understood so that they can safely be avoided.
A mindful foraging walk around the grounds of the Hamblin Centre and time to revise the plants we’ve learnt over fresh herbal tea, will ensure that everyone feels confident in naming and identifying each of the plants, along with how best to prepare them. This herbal knowledge has long been our heritage, and reconnecting with the landscape in this way is both very simple and often quite profound. It is a lesson that will last a lifetime.
Please come with suitable outdoor footwear.
