Join Clare McQuillan for a foraging walk around the beautiful, rural landscape of the Ulster Folk Museum and discover a treasure of edible surprises.

Clare will equip you with the tools of how to identify a range of plants, trees and fruits and as you go round you will also learn of how wild plants had their place in the homes of those in Ulster's history. 

Clare McQuillan is a foraging guide and food freelancer living in Belfast. Her love of discovering wild food came from both a passion for local, seasonal ingredients and the joy of being outside. After attending her first foraging walk a few years ago she became fascinated with the variety of edible plants that were just on the doorstep waiting to be gathered. Since then Clare has been learning, gathering and experimenting with these wild and unusual foods to create unique dishes and since 2018 has been sharing her passion and knowledge as a foraging guide herself.

Some light snacks, inspired by the season, will be included.
