About the Event
A special for Fathers’ Day, this month’s regular morning foraging walk is followed by a picnic lunch, that includes foraged wild plants, then a relaxing Drum Circle in the afternoon.
Bring Dad for a celebration with a difference, an environmentally friendly and enjoyable day to remember.
Join Jenny for a voyage of discovery into the world of edible wild plants.
You will meet many plants during the walk, some familiar, some less so.
Some that you will probably have walked past all your life and not noticed.
You will be surprised how many edible plants grow freely around us and the variety of flavours and uses they have.
Learn how to forage safely and responsibly.
Find two or three plants to confidently begin your own journey to foraging and preparing wild plants and wild foods.
Enjoy a picnic lunch that includes foraged wild plants.
The Drum Circle:
After lunch, join the Drum Circle. Drum circles have been held for millennia to build communities and share relaxation and celebration. There is no requirement to have any previous experience of drumming and you don’t need to bring a drum. Of course if you have a drum you are welcome to bring it along. Every one has a natural rhythm and drumming can help you find yours. The repetitive beats help to calm and relax the mind and body.

Each Foraging Walk ticket entitles you to free membership of a private Facebook Foragers group, where you can find out about plants, post your discoveries, ask questions and share recipe ideas, etc.
Return at different times during the year to see how the plants develop and change, and so you can recognise them in different seasons and phases of their life cycles.
We know you won’t be disappointed.
