Wild Food Foraging Walks – The Winter Store

£30

Price is £30pp. Children under 12 go free but must be accompanied by a paying adult. Booking essential.

These walks last 3 hours. Sundays during 2016. Please see below for upcoming dates or visit our Facebook page.

Our walks take you through the seasons into the different habitats at the different times of year our bodies are most naturally drawn to them.

Traditionally, our ancestors would have relied on animal sources for protein rich diets to sustain them through the winter, but there is still plant based nutrition that can be found, even when there is a thick coat of snow on the ground. Our winter walks are focussed on the trees, specifically in their identifying features in the winter and then how they can be used as foods, including their bark, medicine and their different qualities as fire materials, bows for hunting etc. We will look for edible fungi that can be found through the winter months, and seed stores. 

All of our walks identify the edible plants as well as some of their poisonous ‘lookalikes’. There is always plants to taste and there will be wild edible foods and natural beverages, so wrap up warm and join us in learning what nature has to offer you.

Other Information

Please dress appropriately for the weather. You might also like to bring a basket to gather small amounts of what we find and also a walking stick can be useful, especially on our rocky shore walks.

There will be a chance at the end of the walk to reflect on what we have covered so you may wish to bring a flask and some snacks and plenty of drinking water. If we can we will aim to finish the walk near a café or pub!

Please note that whilst you will be given guidance as to the uses of the different plants and fungi we see, any decision to taste anything is done entirely at your own discretion. Different people can be affected by different plants and fungi, even when they are known to be edible.

Unfortunately we can not allow dogs, except guide dogs, on our walks. We also ask that you please do not leave them in your car as we will be gone some time. Thank you for your cooperation.

Physical Requirements

Our walks are open to anyone who can meander over uneven ground for up to two miles.

If you have any specific medical concerns then please inform your walk leader before the walk or at the time of booking. Please also take along any necessary medication you may need.
