Pick up some ancient knowledge and learn to forage food from the wild with Forager Trudy Turrell. Spring offers a harvest of the freshest salads, greens and teas. Children make great foragers- and as we explore the fabulous fields and hedgerows of coastal Carswell Farm everyone can be involved in foraging, then preparing and cooking up a feast for us all to share. Expect hot nourishing soup, salad, wild teas and a surprising sweet treat!

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. “
