A unique opportunity to try your hand at some seasonal foraging with David Winnard in Hob Hey Wood.  David will help you to safely identify the plants and fungi ‘on your doorstep’ and establish if they are edible, medicinal, or poisonous and how they fit into the larger eco-system.  He likes you to get ‘hands on’ with the items you find, so expect to be nibbling on the tastier wild food you find as we walk around.

David is one of the most respected foragers and naturalists in the North of England and North Wales and will guide you into the world of wild food and natural history.

The walk will last for 2 hours.

No dogs please.

Booking is essential.

Places are limited, so be quick to avoid disappointment.

Meeting at: Junction of Langdale Way and Townfield Lane (next to Townfield Allotment car park).
