Time & Location
24 Mar 2024, 10:30 – 14:30
Didsbury, 18 Stenner Ln, Didsbury, Manchester M20 2RQ, UK
Join Myco for a wild walk around Fletcher Moss where we collect some wild garlic (and potentially other goodies) before returning to the Myco farm for a fermentation workshop. Each participant will take home 2 jars of fermented goodies.
What is a wild walk?
They’re a chance for us to learn, connect and enjoy nature together - we explore a green space at a leisurely pace, pointing out interesting plants or fungi we come across. It’s a space for us to share our knowledge rather than flaunt it - we’re far from professional botanists so can’t identify everything and encourage others to share what they know too! On this wild walk we will be taking the time to forage for wild garlic to use in our fermentation workshop later.
The fermentation workshop
We will be teaching the basics of fermentation and using our foraged wild garlic to make two different ferments, kimchi and lacto-fermented wild garlic.
Meet at the entrance to Fletcher Moss Park near the Didsbury Pub at 10.30 for the wild walk. We will then have a wander around Fletcher Moss for 1 1/2 hours before heading to the Myco Farm on the bus. The fermentation workshop will begin at 1pm at the Myco Farm at Platt Fields Market Garden. The fermentation workshop will likely take about 1 1/2 hours, finishing at 2.30pm.
The cost of this event is £20 - £30 depending on what you can afford. This includes a faciliated wild walk, fermentation tuition, and taking home two jars of wild garlic ferments.
