A WORKSHOP teaching young people and their families how to forage is being put on at Junction Cottage, near Pontymoile Basin, on Saturday.

The workshop is being put on as part of the Hinterlands Wales team’s Saturday Autumn School sessions, and is free to attend.

The session will be led by writer and expert forager Adele Nozedar.

Adele Nozedar has released a book called Foraging with Kids, about her passion for foraging, helping children to discover nature and engage with the world outdoors.

The workshop will start at 10.30am at Junction Cottage, Pontymoile, where participants will then hunt through the hedgerows of the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal for fruits to make into jam.

Places are limited so you must sign up to be able to take part.

To book, contact melissa@peak.cymru or call 01873 811579 for more information.

Hinterlands is a national arts project led by the Canal and River Trust inviting artists and communities to explore canals as a creative space in five locations across England and Wales.

In Wales, the project will focus on Pontypool and areas surrounding the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal in Torfaen.

As the lead arts partner for Wales, Peak is working with the Canal and River Trust to support artists, local groups and community partners to activate the canal as a site of wellbeing, creativity and collaboration.
