Course content: plant identification and uses, cord making, foraging

Our countryside is full of useful plants, but for many people this knowledge has been lost. Learn about plants within a framework of expert guidance. We will look at plants as foods, medicines, poisons, cord fibres, glue, building material, water indicators, firelighters and much more. You can have a go at making cord and spark onto tinders. The session will conclude with foraging for edible species and the opportunity to try some of them for yourself.
