The Edible City: A Year of Wild Food
≡ Menu

DORSET : Rural and Urban Foraging. Upton Country Park. June 9th. Fully Booked.


Sunday June 9th
Upton Country Park,

Fully Booked



Forage London escapes the city to bring you a foraging walk that will suit everyone whether they live in a big city or in the heart of the countryside. Upton Country Park has all the amazing diversity that can be found in some of London’s big parks, lots of wild plants and numerous interesting trees, but unlike any urban foraging spot I can think of it is flanked on one side by the coast and on the other by a beautiful beach woodland. 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.
