David Winnard is a naturalist and forager from Greater Manchester.

For many years he has studied the botany and mycology of our ‘urban jungle’ and has used nearly 200 species for culinary purposes. Having led foraging events across Europe David is skilled in the identification of plants and fungi and has learnt many different ways of using these species from our neighbours across the channel.

This event will showcase some of Manchester finest flowers, fruit, foliage and fungi and we will discuss their edibility (or not in some cases), medicinal value and whether these species are increasing or decreasing and what is causing that.

Greater Manchester may be perceived as an ‘urban jungle’, but jungles are the perfect place to find some weird and wonderful plants and fungi…
