One of our foraging and cooking events!

The Wild Edibles Walk was wonderful! One of our party just came for a day out but left inspired and really into wild edibles! An excellent experience, I can’t recommend it highly enough. – S

I thoroughly enjoyed the Edible Weeds tour of St Kilda.  I loved Doris’s stories and learned so much in such a short time, I’m a total weed convert now! – A

MAKE SURE IT’S EDIBLE BEFORE YOU EAT! Edible weeds can be a great source of nutrition and medicinal benefit. However, some plants are poisonous! Trying to eat a plant to see if it is edible is a recipe for a very sore tummy or much worse! And just because a plant looks like it might be edible, or looks like another edible plant, doesn’t mean it is edible! There are poisonous look-alike plants. And part of a plant may be edible but another part of the same plant might be poisonous. Also, beware of using images on the internet to learn to identify edible weeds. Some images are just downright the wrong plant! Please, do not eat weeds, or any plant, without learning which plants are edible first! Get hold of an edible weeds book and come along on an edible weeds walk where you can see the real plants!
