Join us as we embark on an adventure across Hackney to discover the wild, edible delicacies to be found growing on your doorstep. During the session we will learn how to safely identify a wide range of plants and try up to 30 pre-made tasters from syrup infusions to chutney and jams. Following the foraging adventure, we will then harvest enough wild plants to cook up our own two-course wild food feast!
