Spring Equinox Wild Food Walk

What a fab date to choose!

March 21st, just before Mother’s Day and Transition Chesterfield’s first Wild Food Walk.  Steph and I took what felt like a huge group around Holmebrook Valley Park teaching 1st level foraging.

Of course we did a rekky during last week, so were able to show off first glimpses of Wood Sorrel among others.  We managed about 10 edibles and everyone was really interested and enthusiastic.  The highlight was all the kids loved tasting the gorse buds!

Those who could came back to mine afterwards for a mixed spring salad and fab nettle soup (Steph gathered the nettles).  To see what Transition Chesterfield is up to now go to http://www.transitionchesterfield.org.uk/content/events
