11am start for participants at Alva Glen, maintained and looked after by Alva Glen Heritage Trust. Our guide for a forage walk around the lower wooded section of the glen is Margaret Lear from www.plantsandapples.co.uk/ . Margaret has guided many forage walks around Alva Glen and there is always something new to learn.

Following the walk participants are invited to have their packed lunches back at the Alva Parklands Centre owned and run by the Alva Pensioners Association where refreshments will be provided.

We'll start the afternoon session with a foraged food cookery demonstration presented by Claire Templeton from Alva Ecolodge C.I.C. Alva Ecolodge is a social enterprise that provides learning experiences in the local community by the local community. Alva Ecolodge encourages interaction with the natural environment through it's workshops and learning experiences. Claire is a local forager who enjoys sharing her passion for cooking with foraged foods from the woods of Alva Glen and the Ochils. As cooking of some of the prepared food takes place, Margaret will then present an apple pressing session which will be followed by a food & drink tasting.
