I did a Wild Food Walk with secondary school kids today – one of them tasted a blackberry for the first time in his whole life!! We wandered around Walton Dam and found plenty of thinks to give them to taste, besides the blackberries were elderberries, wild apples, and sorrel. We also pointed out hazel trees, hawthorne and rowan, as well as other berries which are not edible.
There was also the inevitable talk of duck, goose, pigeon, swan (can’t eat that it belongs to the Queen) and other tasty morsels – kids eh?!
