We recently had a group of Foragers staying in the barn lead by renowned expert Fred Gillam - a.k.a. "Fred the Forager". It seemed as though they had a wonderful stay in the barn and found plenty to keep them interested in the nearby fields, hedges and beaches. Fred reported a huge variety of tasty finds from seaweeds to salad leaves and primrose to plantain - all in all a memorable weekend for all those taking part. For more information on the courses run by Fred visit his website at www.thewildsideoflife.co.uk
For those of you not so confident about foraging for your food we've just planted a large herb bed in the garden to satisfy the less adventurous visitors need to pick something!
