John MacPherson joined the Walk on Wednesday 24th September led by Chris and Rose Bax of 'Taste the Wild', and learned some tricks of the trade on food foraging and enjoying Nature.

Those who couldn't come missed a treat because Chris and Rose know their stuff. They took us on a trip round the lanes and woods at Pilmoor and pointed out many edible plants and fungi as well as one mushroom that was most definitely not - the infamous Death Cap. The walk lasted for 2 hours and I took home enough mushrooms to make myself a tasty snack - and live to tell the tale!
Here are Chris and Rose Bax with Steve Smith.
