Publicity material for this event says:

Be inspired by nature on a day out in a wild London location with foraging poet Richard Osmond.

As well as a poet, Richard Osmond is a wild food forager, spending his days searching for wild fruit, herbs and fungi among the hedgerows of Hertfordshire. On this practical, in-person one day crash course – which serves as introduction to our online course, A Poet’s Herbal: Useful Lore for the Poet Outdoors – Richard will meet you in a wild London location, and you’ll spend the day being inspired by nature (instead of a lightbulb turning on above one’s head, imagine a white mushroom appearing in the undergrowth). You’ll be given practical advice on how to stay safe and informed when foraging, complete quick writing exercises based on the plants we encounter, and after a few hours outside the group will retreat to the pub. It will be a full immersion in the world of foraging, and the perspective you gain on this one-day event will be invaluable in informing your later solitary ventures into nature.

Sunday 10 September, 10am-3pm. The workshop starts at Redbridge tube station and ends at Wanstead (both Central line). £72, £68, £58
