Orkney’s Foraging Fortnight starts today 29th of August till 13th of September
Following the success of the first Foraging Fortnight in September 2019 Orkney’s Foraging Fortnight: 31st August – 15th September, this year’s festival will be online due to the Covid19 pandemic.
The LEADER-funded festival aims to encourage people of all ages to become more aware of the benefits of wild plants around us.
“From cookery workshops and foraging walks; Orcadian music and foraged beer, the line up for this year’s Foraging Fortnight has been revealed with a host of virtual events that are accessible from home but provide the skills to forage independently and responsibly afterwards.“
