On this Autumn Foraging Course with Songs, Fire and Tasters, experience wild foods through alfresco songs about the plants, their qualities and uses. Be sung to, hum along or join in. Here you can enjoy another layer of insight into the world of plants and bask in alfresco sounds to the backdrop of St Michael’s Mount. Singers, listeners and non-singers all welcome. Read more about this event or hear some of the songs on the Wild Singing Blog.
