We can order our weekly shop at the click of a mouse or swipe of a smart phone, but adventurers in Aberdeenshire are urging us to return to our roots.
Bushcraft expert Willow Lohr, who has previously run courses for explorer Ray Mears, will show novices how our ancestors used wild plants and flowers for food – and survival.
During the day at Haddo Country Park, participants will gather and forage for plants, build their own campfires and cook a late lunch using the wild ingredients they find.
Information about the use of local plants and roots for medicine, teas and tools will also be available.
Visitor officer Diana Spencer said: “Food always tastes great outdoors, sitting round an open fire, and it’s even better if you’ve found the ingredients yourself.
“Haddo has a whole range of fantastic edible plants and flowers, often much tastier than the ones you find in the supermarkets, and many of us have no idea how to find or identify them.
“Our wild food day will let you discover the amazing resources that are out there in the wild, right under our feet.”
The Wild Food, Foraging & Campfire Cooking Day will begin at 10am and last until 4pm on Saturday, June 14.
The course costs £25 for adults and £10 children, but is not recommended for young children under 12. Participants will be finding their own food throughout the day but can bring snacks and drinks if required.
