Why not come on a relaxing wild edible plant walk, and discover Nature’s hidden larder in the city, hedgerow, riverbanks, and on the coast.
Wild food is the ultimate in ‘local’ and ‘seasonal’ produce and historically has always been a source of food for country people.
Foraging re-awakens your senses so you gain a greater appreciation of Land and your place in the natural cycles and rhythms of life.
