AUTUMN Food and Drink from the hEdge – 24th October 1-5pm – Hilperton Village Hall – FREE and family friendly.

This is the exciting follow up to our Spring event Food and Drink from the hEdge – come to AUTUMN Food and Drink on the 24th of October 2015 at Hilperton Village Hall. They’ll be some more exciting foraging discoveries for all of us with Matt and Jack back from the Ethicurian for an exploration of what autumn can offer the forager around Hilperton.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the foraging and event with the Ethicurean crew. It was a great success and I look forward to hearing a date for the next one.”

hEdge and Field Edge Foraging

24/10/15 – 1pm – 2-30pm

Guided 90 minute walk looking at safe foraged foods and herbs around Hilperton, taking in the natural flora and fauna of the area. Especially looking at autumn berries and fruit – things that might be found would be crab apples, sloes, rowan berries or maybe even plums.

hEdge Cocktails and Cordials

24/10/15 – 3-30pm – 5-00pm

Autumn style this time  – learn how to make your own hedge and field edge recipe cocktails and family-friendly cordials. There will be some hedgerow food to taste as well!

Join us to celebrate the hEdges project and the contribution to it by the local community. The day will also be the official launch of the installation of the new model sized stiles, gates and signs which will be going up soon around Southern Hilperton as a reminder for future generations of the value of living on the hEdge. Many of the field signs have been made using images from local people who generously sent in their photos of what is growing in Hilperton now, including children from the Mead Primary School (thank you !)
