We are very lucky to have a foraging expert at Forest Farm: Aaron “Hedgerow” Edgeley runs foraging workshops and walks, and makes up a mean salad to boot!
The Golden Rules of Foraging at Forest Farm Peace Garden:
- Do not eat anything you are unsure of the identity of. You alone are responsible for what you put in your mouth (not Forest Farm or Aaron!)
- Never gather a plant if doing so will cause undue disturbance to local habitat.
- Always leave enough for others, this includes wildlife and to ensure the ability of the plant to propagate
Check out Aaron’s handy guide to some of the plants you can find at Forest Farm here.
