At this event where all the family can join in, you are invited on a wild food forage in the grounds of Oxford Island.  You will discover what the autumn season has
to offer and have fun picking wild plants. 
Learn what you can and can’t eat and ways to use the produce you have
gathered.  You will also get the
opportunity to learn about the medicinal properties of some the plants you have
picked.


Local forager/instructor Greg McAleenan has a lifetime of experience of
living out of the hedgerows on the shores of Lough Neagh.  Resident chefs for the day Phelim and Wayne
will also teach you how to cook Lough Neagh’s most famous produce, the eel, on
an open fire (weather permitting)

From the moment we confirm any event we already have
incurred an expense and the closer to the date of the event the more expenses
rise.
