Spring Forage – Food is Medicine at Wowo Campsite

Saturday 13th May 2017   10.30am – 4.30pm

Spring is a time of awakening in nature and in our bodies as the days grow longer and warmer. Whilst buds open and leaves unfurl our blood and lymph flow more freely and the liver and kidneys step up their work to clear out our systems after the more stagnant months of winter. To help with this process we have some wonderful plant allies which can be made into delicious foods and medicines and assist us in cleansing and toning our systems ready for the new growth of the year ahead. Wild spring greens have been part of the diet of our ancestors for thousands of years and we will learn some of their traditional and modern uses as well as how we can gain benefit from incorporating them into our lives. On this day we will walk the land and gather some of the spring plants we find for making tea, food and medicine around the fire in the afternoon.  You might take home a herbal vinegar,  healing ointment or another medicine made on the day, feast on wild pesto and pick up some fire by friction tips.
