Chiswick Riverside Foraging Walk

May 28 @ 10:00 am1:00 pm BST

Enjoy a unique walk from Pier House into Duke’s Meadows guided by foraging expert Gemma Hindi of Earthwild. Gemma will be introducing you to a variety of wild food plants and offering advice on how to safely and sustainably make use of them. You will have the opportunity to sample treats and a drink made from local plants at the end of the session.

The ancient skills of foraging are becoming increasingly popular not only as a means of finding fresh sustainable food but also as a way of reconnecting with nature and ancestry. You will be amazed at all the wonderful wild flavours and ways to enjoy them! Subjects covered during the walk will include: The Forager’s Code, botany basics, history and uses of wild edibles, skills for self-sufficiency.

Your guide: 
Gemma is an enthusiastic ethnobotanic educator, interested in the changing relationship between people and plants over time. She has studied and worked with wild plants, trees and fungi for food, medicine, and traditional crafts for 20 years, led guided walks since 2010 and wild cooking workshops since 2016.

What to bring: 
Bottle of water. Suitable clothing and footwear, the walk is fully outside and will go ahead despite the weather! Notebook or camera – you may wish to jot down notes or take photos to jog your memory of all the information covered in the course.
