Starts 9 am
This Field Botany module will cover foraging for and preparing wild foods and fibres. Students will learn about the wild food and fibres that our ancestors used and ate. Following completion of the course you will be able to identify different plants for consumption and learn how to harvest them in a safe and sustainable way. You will also be able to identify different plants that have been used for fibre. As part of this course we will create a gastronomic wild food feast as well as harvesting plants to make some fibres.
You will gain an NCFE Level 3 accreditation upon completion. There will be a strong emphasis on experiential learning. Assessments are based on both practical and classroom skills.
