Following its success in 2019, The Scottish Wild Food Festival will return to Cardross Estate at Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in May 2020.
Taking place on 9 May, the one-day festival, which is funded by Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER, will offer foraging walks and woodland trails; wilderness craft workshops and wild food demonstrations, and the chance to learn about medicinal plants and the benefits of wild teas.
There will be an extensive range of free and paid-for events and activities throughout the day, suitable for people of all ages.
Visitors will also have the chance to learn outdoor skills such as fire lighting and wild cookery. The popular long table lunch will also return to delight diners with a one-of-a-kind culinary banquet using wild ingredients.
They will also enjoy a range of wild-inspired street food as well as a wild food mini market, serving everything from sourdough breads and baking with a foraged twist, to wild flavoured chocolates and elderberry liqueurs.
The Cardross Estate stretches over 4,500 acres of parkland, wood and farmland and has a rich variety of foraging habitats with plenty of hideaways to host intimate workshops.
The full line up for The Scottish Wild Food Festival will be announced shortly on the Foraging Fortnight website.
Tickets are priced at £10 per adult with free entry for children under 16 allowing access to the festival and its many free events, demonstrations, marketplace and information stands. Some events and workshops within the festival are individually priced and pre bookable on the website.
The Scottish Wild Food Festival is one of the key events of Foraging Fortnight, which spans the Forth Valley and Loch Lomond, Fife, Lanarkshire, Orkney and Moray.
Foraging Fortnight runs from 2nd to 17th May 2020 in mainland areas and 29th August to 13th September in Orkney.
