April Wild Food Walk with Claudio Bincoletto

Sunday, 27th April 2014 09:30am - 11:30am

Tickets: £45.00*

We are delighted to welcome back the charismatic and incredibly knowledgeable Claudio Bincoletto for our first Wild Food Walk of the year.

You are invited to join us on Sunday 27th April and discover the joys of foraging in and around Petersham, as we begin this year’s series of walks focusing on ‘Erbette primaverili’: Spring Herbs.

Claudio explains: “Erbette is the common Italian name for all edible greens that you can find in spring. Our first Wild Food Walk of the year will be a nice edible excursion, dedicated to these unknown, and often underrated plants, which I believe are a good addition to any garden. During our walk we hope to taste: *Sorrel: Rumex acetosella ‘Sheep’s Sorrel’ (traditional name: 'pan e vin' / bread and wine). A typical Venetian seasoning used in salads and soup, to add a little sour taste; *Home-grown Rhubarb; *Rocket salad with Radicchi di campo (a mix of Chicory, Erba Stella, Dandelion, Crepis - commonly known as hawksbeard, Field Poppies, Young Sea Beet and Samphire); and of course *Flowers (weather permitting!). When in the countryside recipes with Erbette usually call for pork pancetta to be added as seasoning, but also for added nutritional value. Please do not pick salad leaves on private land, or in urban parks. They are very easy to grow and even easier to enjoy in a salad! For this morning event, some of the plants we are using will be sourced from the wild growing area I manage for Writtle College."

We leave for our walk promptly at 9.30am, which lasts about an hour, after which we will return to the Nurseries for a light brunch and a cooking demonstration by Claudio. Finishing at 11.30am.

Our Wild Food Walks are limited to a minimum of 10 guests per walk, maximum 18.

Tickets: £45.00 (includes walk, light foraged lunch, tea/ coffee and a glass of wine). Concessionary rate of £40.00 for students and Slow Food London members.

Gardening Talk - An Introduction to Cottage Gardening

Tuesday, 27th May 2014 10:30am - 12:00pm

Tickets: £12.00*

You do not necessarily need to own a cottage to think about creating your own Cottage Garden. This traditional, informal style of planting is great for small plots and can be recreated in all kinds of garden spaces.

A Cottage Garden was historically a garden which provided fruits, herbs and vegetables to its owners - however there are a number of flowers which compliment this style of garden, both to aid pest prevention but to add beauty and interest also.

We love Cottage Gardens here at Petersham Nurseries as they are generally full and abundant of growth, flowers and plants, as well as being great for wildlife. Therefore we look forward to sharing this interest with you at our first ever Cottage Gardening event.

During the course of the morning, Horticultural Manager Thomas Broom will introduce the topic, starting with the history then leading a conversation on the plants to use and how to create your own. Questions welcome throughout.

Tickets £12.00 (50% discount on ticket price available to Petersham Horticultural Society Members). Contact 020 8940 5230 or email info@petershamnurseries.com to reserve your place.
