“Fruits of the Forest” A Family Foraging Event
All of us remember picking blackberries along the hedgerows as children, but the forest has so much more to offer and we are inviting you to our forage feast!
As part of Savour Kilkenny we are holding a family foraging day. Spend time exploring the woodlands of Castlecomer Discovery Park, foraging for wild food and learning to identify plants. Search for edible fungi, fruits, nuts, and berries, and learn how to make yummy dishes using all that you have found. Our trained guides from Blackstairs Eco trails will take you on an edible odyssey. Tips, recipes and information sheets are provided and you can take home everything that you find and cook-up!
