Riverside Foraging

Learn about the edible and medicinal wild plants and trees of spring on this walk through the picturesque Sussex countryside. Starting in the historic village of Bramber, our route will include the eerily beautiful ruins of Bramber castle (and the views beyond), as well as two ancient churches, whose relatively undisturbed grounds are home to a plethora of wild herbs. Our route takes us along a short stretch of the River Arun, where we will encounter many common edible and medicinal wild plant and tree species, along with some of their more specialised waterside relatives. Learn how to begin identifying these plants, and get ideas on how to start incorporating them into your diet by means of cooking and preservation. We will be covering some foraging fundamentals, including safety, the law and sustainable/ethical harvesting, as well as examining some of the poisonous or inedible plants that we come across.

To give you an idea of how wild food can be used in your kitchen at home, and to give us a refreshment break, our walk will include a wild crafted picnic, giving you a chance to try wild leaf salad, pesto, cheeses (both plant based and dairy), pickles, kimchi and sauerkraut, cordials, teas, and more besides. Parking is available in the main car park on The Street, Bramber. Bramber village can be reached on the number 2 bus from Brighton. Please bring suitable clothing and foot wear for a few hours outdoors, as well as water and a snack to sustain you during the walk if you think you will need it. To make the most of your experience, it is recommended that you bring a notepad and pen, or another means of recording the information. There can be a lot to take in and field notes can prove invaluable when it comes to further learning.
