    Nature's Tasty Secrets

    Edible nettles, sweet shop flavoured berries and deadly carrots are just some of the culinary, and not so culinary delights, Ranger Kate Martin encounters when she meets Fred the Forager for a late summer stroll.

Fred (https://thewildsideoflife.co.uk/) is an expert with decades of experience. If you would like to experience foraging for yourself we recommend you join a reputable course and only forage under expert guidance.
