Foraging walk for wild edible and medicinal plants

This 2.5 hour foraging walk is a chance for you to take photos, notes and recordings whilst learning tactile and tangible information: touch, taste and smell these herbs in real life.

You’ll gain knowledge and experience to build on so you have a solid foundation in identification techniques, learning where plants grow and how to find them again to continue to use them in your life.

This is a relaxed walk with lots of time to ask questions, get curious about myths and misconceptions and expand into a new perspective of your local parks and green spaces.

You will discover:

  • Essential foraging tips
  • What to bring with you
  • How to harvest safely and responsibly
  • Where to find the best plants
  • What you can do with them once you’ve found them

Step away with...

More confidence to pick and find these herbs in your local environment and continue your journey using them as nutritious and free food and medicine.

Bristol is filled with secret green spaces and small pockets of nature that are waiting for you to explore. This is a wonderful opportunity to head out on an adventure and see the city with new eyes!
