    Today I learnt about Foraging for Food and Folklore courtesy of Alyson Fowler and Pam Smith. Alyson’s fiest speech was that one should not eat unless you can positively identify the plant. She then went on in the course of the perambulation to the Hall and back to provide us with nettles, raspberry leaves, dandelion leaves, lime leaves, sorrel,hedge garlic, beech leaves, and bread and cheese from the hawthorn. Those plants which we didn’t eat Pam was able to fit them into to history and long lost beliefs.
    There were about 45 of us and I’m sure we all learnt a lot. Their efforts are very much appreciated.
