Invasivore Walk
Learn about and harvest delicious invasive species for an ultra sustainable way to eat.
Learn about the invasive wild vegetables carpeting the riversides in spring. Learn about few flowered leek, Japanese knotweed, pink purslane, ground elder, Himalayan balsam and other delicious invasive edibles, find out who brought them here, why they are a problem, how to distinguish them from toxic look-alikes and how to use them in the kitchen. Compare invasive phototoxic giant hogweed with edible native common hogweed and learn how to safely distinguish them already by their first young leaves. Bring scissors and a basket to take home a bunch of tasty invasives in the pleasant knowledge that, for once, our consumption only benefits the environment.
This course may include food or drink samples, so please inform me of dietary requirements ahead of time.
Since this course is all about doing a little bit to restore the balance, an additional £5 discount is offered to anyone choosing to come by bus or bicycle.
