Come gather a wild harvest of plants from the meadows and shores of Carswell’s fabulous beach, with Forager Trudy Turrell. Pick up some ancient knowledge and delve into rockpools to sustainably harvest a variety of seaweed, plus wild summer edibles from field and hedgerow.  Together we’ll learn how to prepare, cook and preserve them and create a feast to share in Carswell’s Field Kitchen. A fun walk with barefoot foraging that kids and adults will love.  Be prepared for one steep climb with steep steps to the beach, clambering over rockpools and fabulous views!

7 year olds and up can forage but younger siblings welcome for the walk. Children must be accompanied by parents or adult carers.

Please bring suitable footwear for walking across fields, coast paths and rockpools.

Due to the nature of Carswell Farm, this forage isn’t suitable for anyone with mobility impairment and no dogs.

Words by Trudy Turrell

“I have been fascinated by wild foods for most of my life. Working in conservation in South Devon for 20 years gave me the privilege to explore the hidden valleys, coastline, estuaries and woodlands and experience nature daily at first hand. I love to use wild food in favourite recipes and explore ways of preserving it. Sharing knowledge and good food together is a fabulous way to spend time in nature. I have led foraging events for the National Trust, South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Deer Wood Trust, Ackerll’s Rewilding Project and for families and celebrations. I have led forages at Carswell Farm for Newton Ferrers Primary School for several years. Now, thanks to the owners, I have the chance to share the wild riches of over a thousand acres of carefully managed organic land and seashore with you. “
