Edible and medicinal plant walk

Huize Frankendael / restaurant Merkelbach

€15.00

Saturday 7th March[masked] – 13.15 March Walk – Park Frankendael. €15 per person (free for apprentices) Join me for a wander around Park Frankendael, looking at the wide variety of edible and medicinal plants which can be found, as we move further into spring. Park Frankendael is a great place to learn about ethical foraging and I’d love you to join me to find out what’s in season and how to use it. My community project, River of Herbs, has four beautiful wild herb gardens there so I’ll show you around those and the wider park. The walk will go ahead come rain or shine so please be prepared for that when you book – a great opportunity to get your wellies or boots out – we will stick mostly to the paths though. I forage in all weather’s but the walk will not happen if we have a storm, because we’ll be in the woods and falling branches are not fun – so keep an eye on your messages after booking, just in case.
