Foraging: A Taste of the Wild
Workshop Calendar 2017
|15th April||8 places||55 euro||Book Now|
Join me Sue Rodgers for a walk along local country tracks around the picturesque spa village of Lanjaron and discover the delicious ingredients to be found on your doorstep.
Whatever the time of year there are always leaves, flowers, seeds, fruits to be found that can be made into delicious salads, drinks, puddings and so much more!
Join me and a walk along a country track will never be the same. Our Workshops are strictly limited in numbers, as we want everyone to receive personal tuition to get the most out of the day
- We meet at 10am, at the Tourist Office, Lanjaron (there is plenty of parking behind the Tourist Office).
- We start our walk along local tracks, stopping to forage for some delicious ingredients, depending upon the time of year. The walk is leisurely and so suitable for everyone to enjoy. We stop for some tea and cake en route as well as nibbling on some of our hedgerow finds.
- On arrival at our cortijo, set in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, you will get the chance to use those foraged gems with ingredients from the organic garden in a delicious lunch.
- After lunch my husband Pete will take you on a tour of our Organic Market Garden, from where we sell organic salads and herbs to local hotels, restaurants and the public.
- You will finish the day with Tea & Cakes before you return along mule tracks back to the village of Lanjaron, arriving about 4pm ish
Sue Rodgers – I have been passionate about wild flowers and foraging since my childhood, spending long summer holidays with my Grandparents at their smallholding in North Wales.
I remember foraging for Hawthorn, Blackberry, Elderflower, Gorse flowers to be used in my father's wine as well as learning how to tap Birch Trees! Following a foundation course in Natural Medicine with Neal's Yard Remedies, I learned more about the myriad of ingredients that can be found in a hedgerow or along country tracks, that not only taste delicious but can treat a range of ailments.
What to bring
- The walk is over rough ground in places, so trainers or walking shoes – NOT flip flops!
- A sunhat and sun-cream is recommended
- A small bottle of water (there is a spring at the Tourist Office, where you can fill up for free on Lanjaron Water!)
- We supply all refreshments and materials for the workshop
