A wild food workshop is being held on Saturday 10 March from 11am to 1pm at Huntingdonshire District Council's Community Nursery at Godmanchester.
Wild Food WorkshopParticipants will get a chance to forage amongst the woodland and hedgerows of the nursery, collecting edible wild plants which will be cooked up and served as a delicious wild spring green soup to be enjoyed by all.
Ranger Amrita Huggins said: "Foraging is a great way to incorporate fresh seasonal vegetables into your diet without having to worry about cost, food miles or the impact of intensive agriculture. It's also a lovely way to appreciate the countryside and the changing seasons, as every habitat and time of year brings its own selection of edible wild foods to try."
To book a place, phone 01480 388910 as places are limited. Costs are £6 for adults and £3 for children aged 7 and upwards. For more information phone Amrita Huggins on 07748 623073.
This event is organised and run by Countryside services, Huntingdonshire District Council. Huntingdonshire Community Nursery is owned and managed by Huntingdonshire District Council. The nursery works with many volunteers, many of whom have special needs and enjoy learning new skills, meeting new people and keeping fit by volunteering at the nursery. Volunteers grow trees for the parish tree planting scheme, and fruit, vegetables and garden plants which are sold to raise funds for the nursery.
