This site is best suited for a introduction to foraging in the local woodlands and hedgerows of Bostall Woods and Bostall Heath in Abbey Wood, Greenwich. The woods are well known as the former haunt of highwaymen such as the infamous Dick Turpin. The 160 hectare site which includes woodland and open grassland with great varieties of wild plats, fruits & funghi to discuss. There is a car park on Longleigh Lane where we will meet further details sent on confirmation. The flavour-led foraging walks run for 2.5 hours and we will head into the hedgerows and surrounding woodlands enjoying some of my wild snacks and tasters at various stop off points.
These walks are an introduction to foraging for flavour in order to teach on the rules and regulations, identification techniques, and the risks associated with wild food and drink. Throughout the walk we will identify seasonal ingredients and compare and contrast with their dangerous counterparts. During this I will be regularly visiting certain techniques of preservation and ways in which to create tasty wild ingredients to use at home along with a few tasters along the way.
