Food foraging workshop, 21st January

In collaboration with our friends at  Grow Bradford and The Plot, we  at Wur Bradford are delighted to present a FREE creative session on food foraging. (Foraging is the age-old process of gathering food from nature. Almost the whole year round, in woodland, fields, on hedgerows and oozing from cracks in trees, you can find a surprising range of wild fungi, leaves, fruit, nuts and berries.)
