Event description

Description

Join Wild Heritage on a walk to find out how to forage a feast from the Forest.

Join us on a family friendly foray to look for and identify hedgerow fruits, berries and woodland wild foods. Activities include making leaf gathering parcels, a forager’s charm and an ‘I-Spy’ challenge. There will be opportunities to taste wild food jams and syrups brought along on the day.

This is an educational walk and there will be no collection of fungi to eat.

Activities suitable for children over 5 years old.
