Explore the edible possibilities that trees provide with Rob Penn, author and project manager of Stump Up For Trees, a community-based tree planting initiative in the Brecon Beacons. From hawthorn jelly, damson jam and rowan syrup, to chestnut pancakes, sloe gin and ash key pickle, our native trees offer a plethora of foodstuffs, many with medicinal qualities. So why aren’t we planting more of them on our upland commons?

The session will also incorporate readings from Matthew Plumb, Tree Surgeon Poet
