Sussex Wildlife Trusts Wildlife Guardians met at Knepp Castle Estate, home of Sir Charles and Lady Burrell, for a lunch with a difference.
During a day out at the estate, the Guardians discovered how to safely gather wild food and how to cook over a fire they had started from scratch without the help of matches!
Their lunch, designed and prepared by wildlife expert Neil Fletcher, included such treats as oven-pit roasted haunch of venison with rowan jelly, elderberry sauce, mashed burdock and wild mushrooms. Fire making was taught by the Trust's Forest Schools leader Mark Lloyd.
Wildlife Guardians are a core group of supporters passionate about conservation. To find out how to join this special membership level of the Trust please contact Sarah Hince 01273 497520 or Alison Ross 01273 497525 for an informal chat.
