This morning we joined a relaxed and friendly foraging class with author Johanna Knox. Her book 'A Forager's Treasury' is beside my bed and each night I have a flick through it, so it was wonderful to have a hands on lesson on foraging for food in our own surroundings.
I enjoyed seeing some wool fibres Johanna had dyed with plants.

We then headed off into the fields to see what we could find.
