A 2 hour (approx.) walk learning how to identify wild edible spring plants, that are growing in the hedgerow and riverside, and the poisonous plants you could mistake them for.
Ending with a delicious meal at The Old Plough Inn sampling the wild food we find.

Tavistock’s first Seed Swap was a great success on Saturday 8th April. We had just over a hundred visitors dropping into Local Matters for seeds, advice and a chat. We’d like to thank Rob and Diana from Holsworthy Organics for helping us offer a great range of seeds; and to all the local allotment holders and other local growers who bought in seeds to share. The courgette seeds seemed to be very popular and were snapped up quickly.
If you missed it, we still have seeds to share at Local Matters (Elbow Lane, Tavistock) every day (except Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays) between 11:00 and 13:00. If you don’t have any to swap, or just too many to use yourself you can always drop them in so others can benefit.
We’re also really keen to hear your growing tips. Come and add them to our ‘greenboard’ or email email@example.com or call 07969 569 444.
Join us between 10.00am and 13.00pm on Saturday 8th April at Local Matters.for the first ever Tavistock Seed Swap!
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any seeds to bring, come along, get some for free and bring them back to next year’s swap!
There will be lots of growers, gardening advice & plenty of chat.
