How To Eat Ash Keys

Learn how to preserve ash keys as a wild food. I show you a method for pickling and fermenting ash keys which is easy to do. These are two ways to prepare and preserve this wild food so you can enjoy it year round. This whole exercise is an experiment though so time will tell if this process improves the ash keys flavour. Try it for yourself 🙂

Wild foods are so good for our overall health and whilst we're foraging we are also outdoors getting exercise, fresh air and sunshine on our faces.

Wild Wellbeing: Life Through A Lens

This activity is aimed at teens studying Key Stage 3 and upward. The video can also be used as a lesson by high school teachers and homeschooling families.

Spending quality time in nature is a proven way to look after your mental wellbeing. By slowing down, taking notice and paying attention we can get into a mindful headspace. Crating your own nature photography is an effective way for young people (and adults) to learn this technique.

Do You Know This Wild Food?

Many foragers don't know about this great and tasty wild food. James shows you one of his favourite wild foods that makes a great foraging snack when you're out on a walk. It's the fresh, young seed cases of the Elm tree, which appear in April.
