What you'll do

The transition between winter and spring is the perfect time to experience a hands-on foraging walk through a series of riverside paths and woodlands before making your own skin supporting and cleansing tonics!

As you walk, you'll find an abundance of fresh new leaves emerging. This new greenery and blossom medicine can be preserved beautifully in apple cider vinegar and your knowledgable host Maria will show you how to identify and collect them from the hedgerows.

After this, you'll continue with the wildcrafting workshop. Here, with Maria's guidance, you'll be shown how to make a range of ways to make spring cleansing tonics, using the wild leaves and blossoms to enhance the taste and the healing properties.

You'll leave the experience with lots of newfound knowledge and your own creations to enjoy at home – the tonics are a great addition to any morning wake-up drink, added to water, fizz or cocktails!

This experience is suitable for beginners and advanced foragers.

Minimum fitness level required.

What people are saying

Fabulous morning with Maria who is delightful and very knowledgable, I learnt a lot and enjoyed sampling leaves and flowers as we went. The tea we made from foraged plants was delicious as was the cordial. Highly recommend this experience
