Wild Food Mary – Guided Foraging Walk


Wild Food Mary – Guided Foraging Walk

Saturday 14th September, Charleville Estate Castle 10am . Cost €5.00 pay on arrival.

Mary Bulfin, foragerchef, and lover of all good food nature has to offer. I collect wild foods, use them fresh and also preserve, make all kinds of treats from delicious elderflower delight to relishes, dried mushrooms, and wonderful liqueurs.

Foraging is the oldest human method of gathering food. It mainly consists of collecting naturally growing green leaves, flowers, berries, nuts, mushrooms and roots.

The benefits of collecting and eating wild food are many. Foraged food is healthy, ecological, tastes fantastic, and is a joy to collect!
