Coastal Forage with Your Senses - learn to find wild food by the sea
Join us on this half day coastal foraging walk - you'll learn about edible wild plants that grow freely by the coast, using all of your senses, then you'll get to try some delicious and wild food that we've prepared for you. On this coastal foraging walk you'll: • learn ways to tune into your senses • get to know plants using all of your senses • meet and identify lots of wild, abundant, coastal plants that are edible After the walk, you’ll be able to sample teas made from wild herbal plants, try a foraged green salad, and other tasty wild food that we've prepared. This session is being led by Mike Cutting. Mike has a wealth of plant knowledge and can also talk about bird song, signs of local animal activity, and an appreciation of the whole habitat. (NB No dogs please, and suitable for anyone age 16+.) NB please be aware that part of the area we'll be walking in is a nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and the actual picking of plants in these areas is not allowed. About Mike Mike is a gardener, forager, ethno-botanist and bushcraft instructor currently living in Brighton. He has always loved nature and the outdoor life, and has a passion for wild plants and their many uses. Mike is particularly interested in the culinary uses of wild ingredients, as well as their medicinal value and the rich folklore and history surrounding them. Mike is a strong believer in the benefits of increasing our connection to the natural world. He aims to convey this by providing experiences that are grounded in useful and practical knowledge, but also to explore the ephemeral and spiritual connection that we have shared with these fascinating beings for millennia.

    What we're about

    Heard the call of the wild? We are a group for anyone interested in nature-based activities, bushcraft skills, and nature connection.

    Join us and be creative in the woods around a fire, with birdsong, wild plants, and like-minded people.

    Get away from your screen and spend time in the wild, with badgers, foxes and crows instead.

    Learn bushcraft, fire lighting, foraging, nature connection, native crafts, mindfulness-based nature practices and more.

    We work with experienced wilderness teachers, artists, trackers and course leaders, along with our own group organised events.

    This is a chance to have some wild time, so see you in the woods!
