Bored of eating at the same chain restaurants and fast food outlets? Join us to learn how to identify wild Autumn herbs growing quietly underfoot as you walk about the city. Led by Ceri Buckmaster, you'll also learn new recipes of what to do with the plants once you’ve foraged them. Taking place in early October, one of the best times of year for urban foraging, you’ll come away seeing your natural environment in a completely different way, recognising potential food sources in the green spaces around you.
Meeting at Crossbones Garden, the hour-long walk will take you around the local area, getting you back to your desk before the end of your lunch break.
Since 2008, Ceri Buckmaster has led walks in London’s green spaces to learn about wild foods. Her book Street Food: Urban Foraging and World Food shines a spotlight on wild food as the ‘new street food’ in a collection of recipes inspired by the wild plants that grow in urban areas as well as by the people and diverse food traditions present in the city.
