Scottish Natural Heritage, with support from Bòrd na Gàidhlig, has produced a Gaelic guide to responsible foraging – thought to be the first of its kind. This will help to support and strengthen the links between the Gaelic language and Scotland’s environment.
The booklet is not only a guide to the wide range of edible and delicious plants and seaweeds available on our doorsteps. It’s also a great resource for learning, useful for teachers and parents and introducing children to the Gaelic names and cultural connections of many common species.
It’s a good addition to other resources developed through our Scotland’s Natural Larder project, which aims to connect people with food from nature and demonstrate another of the many ways we benefit from a healthy environment.
