A fun day with transition year students today,here is  just a selection of plants we worked with.

We also enjoyed some Wild Damson brownies (Gluten and dairy free of course) and Nettle Lemonade.

We saw flowering Hazel with it’s big male catkins and tiny pink female flowers, which is the part that becomes the Hazelnut.

We tasted a Garlic flavoured Cabbage, and found scented Sweet Violets.

We found Sorrel, loaded with vitamin C and learned about some common natural pain killers.

We identified wild foods packed with Protein and many other nutrients.

We dug for Pignuts met the resident donkey, dogs and animals.

Thank you all for a busy fun day,

Mary
