2020 - Sat 6th June
This walk will take in some wonderful coastal wild flowers, some of which are amazing to forage.
We will be looking at how certain species have adapted to life on the coast, explore the shingle and beach itself for species like Sea Kale, Sea Radish and Sea Rocket, and then working our way along to find plants along the upper beach or areas nearby. Naturally we will not just be covering the edibles, we shall take in a number of non-edible or poisonous species to make you aware of the potential dangers of foraging near the coast, species like Hemlock and Hemlock Water-dropwort.
The walk will be leisurely and we will be stopping frequently to take in many of the plants. We will be discussing how to sustainably harvest as well as identify all the plants we encounter along our walk, which will mainly be flat but at times will be walking on uneven terrain.
Our courses are limited to 14 people as this number allows for a good atmosphere and allows David to get to know what each persons knowledge base is and cater to their needs, whether you are a complete novice to foraging or slightly more experienced we can offer everyone a truly great experience.
