Event description

Description

This course ran monthly last year. This year there will be 2 extra sessions, in June and July, as new wildflower species come thick and fast then. The course is planned so that participants can come to any or all of the sessions. There will be “extension” materials available for more knowledgeable participants.

The focus is not just on identifying wild flowers, but in looking at the whole plant, and how it changes over time, how it competes in its habitat, how it’s pollinated. We’ll look a little at herbal and culinary uses, and folklore. We’ll spend most of our time outside.

Each session will pay particular, but by no means exclusive, attention to one of the larger plant families.

Sessions run from 10am till 4pm, with an hour lunch break. Bring own packed lunch. Tea, coffee, biscuits supplied.

A series of days looking at wild plants, including trees and shrubs. We will identify plants, get to know their ecology, examine their structure and how they fit into their plant family, their pollination and other wildlife values, and their connections to human culture. Each event stands alone, but also builds on previous ones. Suitable for beginners, and more experienced participants will be given extra challenges. Each time, as well as looking at a wide range of plants, we will give special attention to one major family.
