We revisit Dave Watson as she shows us how to make your very own whistle using elder wood. Elder Wood is the perfect wood for this job due to its very soft pith that can be easily removed to create a hollow tube. What sounds will your whistle make?

Wild Harvests: Rosehips and Sloes

by WoodlandsTV ~ 2 December, 2019 ~ 5 comments

In this film, Fi recommends using dog rose hips for making roseship tea, a delicious drink full of Vitamin C and the scent of Autumn. We then take a look at the blackthorn's shockingly sour sloeberries, which can be transformed into (surely?!) everyone's easy homemade favourite – sloe gin!

Our guide for the Wild Harvests series, Fi Martynoga, is an expert forager and writer, living in the Scottish Borders. She has put together a most wonderful book called Scotland's Wild Harvests, and is a writer for Reforesting Scotland magazine, as well as being involved with Carrifran Wildwood (which I am invited to make a film about next year when they celebrate 20 years of success!).
