Foraging Walk

Ross Bentley reporter for the EADT:
Members of Transition Sudbury and District braved the sleet and cold
to learn about the forgotten art of foraging at the weekend.
The educational event was held at Tiger Hill nature reserve near
Assington and was hosted by reserve warden Nick Miller.
He said: ““People are unlikely to survive purely on foraging, it’s
more of a hobby. But knowing about the properties of plants and trees
can greatly enhance a walk.”
This time of year wild mushrooms come into their own and 2012 has been
particularly good for fungi compared with the dry autumns we’ve
experienced of late. Puffballs, parasols and blewits are just some of
the locally-found fungi that can be taken home for dinner.
But Mr Miller has a word of warning for would-be foragers preparing to
head out into the wilds.
“There are a number of toxic mushrooms out there and my rule is if you
are uncertain don’t eat it. The problem is you can easily get it
wrong. For example, there is a type of mushroom, which is
poisonous, that resembles the field mushroom, which you can eat. And

telling the two apart can be difficult.”
A big thank you to Nick for his time and knowledge.

  2. Although many people won't find this computer prank hilariously funny, it's
    a good way to get revenge on someone who is a perpetrator of pranks.
    The single-player story method features
    company new people who appear to be meant for future Combat on the internet games,
    especially two Delta Force middle management codenamed Ice and Sandman. You may get warnings about the driver not being
