Collecting nature’s bounty
Friday 1st October
Cotswold Forager Rob Gould led two small groups through the countryside, learning all about how the hedgerows can supply all sorts of useful, and edible, things. Did you know plantain leaves are better than dock for relieving nettle stings? Mugwort makes a tea that promotes sleep, but can give vivid dreams. And those lime trees that drip sticky stuff on our cars were planted because linden flower tea had a calming effect on those suffering from shellshock after World War I.
