About the event

“Dandelions are just friendly little weeds who only want to be loved like flowers.”

- Heather Babcock

Discovering the Nutritional Benefits of Dandelions (Taraxacum Officinale)

Dandelions are often viewed as an annoying weed, but they are in fact an incredible source of vitamins A, B, C, & D, as well as minerals such as iron, potassium & zinc making them a wonderful, often overlooked, edible plant.

Foraging for edible plants is an exciting way to connect with nature & learn about the abundance of wild food available to us.  With an experienced guide leading the way, you will learn how to identify various plants & discover their unique flavors and nutritional benefits.

After harvesting your bounty, you'll get to enjoy the satisfying process of preparing your own food.  The plants will be cleaned & battered in a delicious local beer, which will add a unique flavor to the dish.  Then, you'll have the opportunity to cook your creation over a cosy campfire, which will not only add to the experience but also enhance the flavor of the food.

As you indulge in your mouth-watering Springtime treat, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you've gathered & prepared the ingredients yourself.  And, with a storage container in hand, you can take some extra freshly made snacks home to enjoy later or share with friends and family.

Recommended kit & equipment:

- Camping chair

- Food container

- Foraging bag

- A sense of wonder, exploration, adventure & an appetite
