Wildflower Identification: Botany for Foragers

16 July at 10:00 am til 3:00 pm

Sepals, petals, hairy bracts and carpels!

If you ever wanted to look a bit closer into the detail of plants and learn how to accurately identify them, join us on this one day course facilitated by botanist & mycologist Ali Murfitt of Our Living Land. We’ll look at key features which help identify plants and the combination of ‘characters’ which group them together, making it quick and easy to tell them apart with confidence. Along the way we’ll cover some edible and medicinal plants as well as the poisonous ones to be aware of. No experience required.

We aim to make our events participatory, enjoyable and inclusive, and will do our best to cater to individual needs & learning styles – please get in touch if you have any concerns.

Cost is offered on a sliding scale of £30-£60 for the day. To book please visit the Grass Roots Remedies website.
