There is such a bounty of delicious treats that can be found in the hedgerows in autumn.
Hawthorn Berries are a very nutritious foraged food that has been linked with reducing anxiety. It's important to always prepare Hawes before eating as the stone inside can be very poisonous.
In this short film, made in partnership with woodlands.co.uk, we show you how to make delicious Hawthorn Berry Ketchup.
This film is great fun and good for your wellbeing because because it helps you get your 5 ways to wellbeing and connects you with nature.
