Wild Food Walk in the Purbecks

Theresa McManus says:
What a fantastic walk we had in Studland ! Many thanks to Will !

Not only did he provide lots of fascinating information about plants that provide a

yield we can use, but also had samples of fruit syrups and fruit leathers f

or us to try ! Whoopee !

We were very lucky with the weather and it was a gloriously sunny autumnal day. Amongst the many plants discussed were elder, hawthorn, dogrose, st. John’s wort, blackthorn, nettle, ground elder, and a variety

of seaweeds. After the walk we relaxed in the sunny beer garden of the Bankes Arms, which sells a great range of Purbeck Brewery products, with bunnies frolicking in nearby fields and the gorgeous panorama of Poole Bay in the background.

As the day what a complete success, we hope to arrange a number of similar events for next year.
