Informative and interesting day. Mat was friendly and knowledgeable and shared a wealth of detail about the plants and herbs that could be foraged and how to prepare them for the table.

A very interesting and informative day. So many everyday plants are edible. Matt gave advice and recipes for their use. As well as that the location and scenery were stunning.

Whilst the title states foraging we did not gather/harvest. Matt will explain why. The day gives you a basis to go away and forage for yourself.
