In our fast paced modern world, with our attachment to technology and a wealth of food on tap, many of us have lost touch with our natural world and where our food comes from. There is a bounty of free wild food available in our hedgerows and forests. If you’ve ever wondered what there could possibly be for us to eat in our hedgerows and forests, now is your chance to learn nature’s secrets.
Come and join experienced wild forager Dermot Hughes of Forage, on a guided wild food forage walk around Creggan poet’s trail, after a short bus ride from Crossmaglen. Dermot will teach you how to identify the edible plants available at this time of year and how to collect them responsibly, so that there is plenty left to continue growing. Dermot will also advise you on how to prepare the food that you find to make salads and soups.
After your guided walk why not join Dermot in the Cross Square Hotel for a nettle soup cookery demonstration and tasting.
The bus to Creggan will be leaving from the Crossmaglen Community Centre at 10am and returning by 12pm. Booking is essential as places are limited.
The cookery demonstration will be taking place in the main hall of the Crossmaglen Community Centre from 12pm to 1pm.
