A Journey of Discovery Through Native Trees and Edible Plants.
Join us for an exciting day of exploring the native trees and wild edible plants that are abundant in the area.
Our knowledgeable guides will take you on a journey of discovery as you learn how to identify a range of common tree species by looking at leaves, flowers, catkins, and other clues. As we take a guided walk through the trees and parkland you’ll gain confidence in identifying trees and plants and understanding their value to wildlife.
You will also learn to identify a variety of edible plants and discover their medicinal uses. You’ll learn what they taste like, where to find them and what you can do with them in the kitchen.
At lunchtime, we’ll share a hot campfire brew together at the riverside fire circle, sheltered under the canopy of native trees. Our guides will also share fascinating facts about the history and folklore of the plants and trees, as well as tips on how to forage safely and sustainably.
Whether you’re a nature lover, a foodie, or just looking for a fun and educational day out, this guided walk will leave you with the skills and knowledge to confidently identify native trees and start foraging wild foods for yourself. Plus, you’ll take away your very own Tree ID Guide chart, perfect for continuing your learning after the course is done.
