Special Event - Nordic + a Forage

Every time we go out we are witnessing the change in the Seasons and learning about the nature we are immersed in.

And this includes learning more about how we can live off the land.  This month we are privileged to have an edible flower demonstration at Kathy Brown’s Gardens. In June, we will take this a step further with a special FANW event ‘Nordic + a Forage’ in conjunction with Simon Birbeck of Wild Adventures. Simon is an ecologist, bushcraft and survival specialist with a deep interest and background in ecology, biology and environmental science with a passion for wild flowers and how our ancestors foraged for medicines and food.  He is a Master Herbalist in Phytotherapy.

Places are limited. However, if there is a lot of interest we may be able to run a second afternoon session. This will be a quite unique event! If you’d like your children to come along, please give me a ring first to discuss.

Event details:  We will be nordic walking, foraging and eating what we have harvested on route.  Simon will share his expertise and enthusiasm which is infectious.  There will be a rather special finale at a secret location around a camp fire with special snacks and cordials to complement what we have picked up on the way.

Date: Saturday 15 June 2019

Time: 9am start - the event will run for the whole of the morning.

Meeting point:  White Lane Track, off Dungee Road, heading out of Harrold towards Podington

Price:  £40 per person in advance (deadline for booking is 10 days before). This fee includes the nordic walking session.
