Epping Forest Vegan Walk & Raw Vegan Picnic
Let’s get outdoors, escape pollution and urbanization and explore London's famous and ancient forest and beautiful glades. Join us as we walk through the interior of magnificent Epping Forest, a beautiful wilderness stretching from the outskirts of London deep into rural Essex. We are breaking for a picnic lunch of RAW wholesome food. Spanning two-and-a-half thousand hectares, the forest has attracted national heroes such as Lawrence of Arabia, who once lived by its edge, as well as royalty who came to what was formerly a royal hunting ground as well as notorious highwaymen such as Dick Turpin. Luckily we won't encounter any highwaymen. However, we will see beautiful forest land, meadows, ponds, rivers, streams, bogs, maybe energy points, possibly deer and some rare birds as well as some breath-taking scenery.
We will meet at Loughton Underground Station at 10:45am which is on the Central Line and is easy to get to. Please note a Sunday service is in operation so it is slightly more intermittent than weekdays. There is a station car park available as well if you are travelling by car to the meet up point. Loughton station is a few minutes’ walk to the Forest outskirts. We plan to leave for the forest at 11am.
We will stop for a vegan raw food picnic lunch and a social sit down and then do a further exploration whilst heading on back in a circular fashion.
Anyone is welcome provided they stick to the vegan raw food criteria. Please bring only raw vegan food to consume and share with others (preferably organic produce if possible).
Hopefully it will be good weather but please check before hand and bring the necessaries with you if need be (umbrella, waterproofs etc).
