With wild garlic currently in season, this month sees Denise Dunne host a number of informative and fun foraging experiences, including a day-long workshop which takes place at Howth Castle on Sunday May 12th.

The event gets underway with coffee and pastries, followed by an exploration of the lush castle grounds, learning about the native Irish seasonal plants and herbs there.

With safe foraging, plant identification, and sustainability firmly front and centre, the day also features myriad opportunities to learn all about the Forager’s Code. While primarily focusing on the culinary uses of plants, the founder of The Herb Garden will also take some time to cover some of the interesting folklore surrounding them, in addition to providing some basic information about their potential medicinal uses.

The foraging session will be followed by a delicious wild food lunch and a practical cookery class where participants can learn how to make their own unique foraged preserves based on the haul from their morning’s exertions.

Afterwards, participants get to bring the fruits of the labours home to share with family and friends, safely equipped with the knowledge required to continue to forage with confidence in the future.
