The Edible City: A Year of Wild Food
≡ Menu

HAMPSHIRE : Urban Foraging in Southampton. March 23rd.


Saturday March 23rd
Southampton, Hampshire.



Forage London escapes the big city and heads to a smaller one. This event will be held in a city park reasonably close to Southampton Central Station, so easy transport for locals and Londoners alike.The walk will be led by the author of The Edible City and Forage London founder John Rensten. It will last for about three hours, involving safely picking and eating various leaves, berries etc as we go along with various new foods and drinks to try (made from different wild ingredients we’ve previously picked, cooked, fermented, pickled etc), learning to identifying plenty of edible plants and discussion touching on numerous topics including, nutrition, medicine, herbalism, botany, cookery, horticulture and history.

Travel info…From London Waterloo to Southampton Central takes only 1 hour 15 mins after which the location will be a 10 minute cab ride. Exact locations will be published much nearer the time.
