Forage with Alys Fowler, Gardening Columnist with The Guardian
Alys Fowler returns to Litfest and to the familiar territory of the land around the Ballymaloe Cookery School where she will lead us on a merry trail of discovery of the often unseen edible treasures under our feet. We hope the sun will shine but just in case do bring along a raincoat and wellington boots.
Her infectious passion for the great outdoors is matched with a ruthless determination to educate the masses in the joys of self-sustainability. She expresses her concerns for the environment with sharp but positive intelligence, delighting in the ecosystem rather than bemoaning the perils of climate change. Driven by her need for solitude, as much as her love of community, Alys is warm, eloquent, funny, and just a tiny bit eccentric. – Dumbo Feather
