Wild Food Foraging walks – Spring roots, leaves and flowers

£15

Price is £15pp. Children under 12 go free but must be accompanied by a paying adult. Booking essential.

These walks last 2.5 hours. Sundays during 2017. 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

Spring plants are natures way of raising your metabolism after the long nights of winter and staying huddled up inside in hibernation mode. They help to clean your blood and strip the cholesterol that your body needed to function in the colder dark days of winter. These energising plants with their bold flavours are a great way to begin your wild food journey.

We’ll be running these half day walks throughout April to mid June where we will show you how to identify the different edible flowers, leaves and roots of spring. We’ll visit fields and hedgerows, where we can gather edibles and talk about their different uses, including; as food and beverages, medicine, and traditional uses.

All of our walks identify the edible plants as well as some of their poisonous ‘lookalikes’. There is always plants to taste and examples of goods that can be made with them, for e.g. sauces, teas. We will discuss other uses of the plants from fire starting to primitive artist materials.

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.

Not all locations are suitable to bring dogs, except guide dogs, so please check before booking 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.

If you have any medical concerns then please inform me at the beginning of the walk or at the time of booking and please bring any necessary medication with you.
