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 we'll make something you can eat from our harvest.
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 you can eat
After the walk, we’ll have a fire where you’ll be able to sample teas made from the wild herbal plants that we find, try a foraged green salad, and other tasty wild food that we gather.
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+.)

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.
