Wild Food Foraging

Saturday 16 June, 11am

Join us on a foraging adventure across Hackney to discover the wild, edible delicacies to be found growing on your doorstep. During the session we will learn how to safely identify a wide range of plants and try up to 30 pre-made tasters from syrup infusions to chutney and jams. Gavin Ireland is an author, wild food forager, and student of medicinal plants. Gavin has been foraging for most of his life and is now passing on his knowledge and experience as one of the team at Totally Wild UK.

Departure point is outside the Strikers cafe, at Hackney Marshes Centre, Homerton, E9 5PF. The centre can be reached on the 276 bus from Hackney Wick towards Stoke Newington and get off at Poplar Close. Then walk turning right onto Homerton Road, turning left into the Hackney Marshes Centre. Drinks can be purchased at the cafe, which is cash only.

Additional dates: Saturday 19 May
