ALL IN-PERSON CLASSES, WALKS AND EVENTS FOR 2020 ARE POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC.
I AM RUNNING EXTRA ONLINE CLASSES & COURSES. Click here to see those.
With these walks I proudly support local organic farmers, growers and community gardens.
Walks take place from May-Oct.
Come on a walk and discover some of the beautiful medicinal and edible plants that grow around us. We will nibble as we go along, while Vivienne talks about the medicinal and nutritional properties of these plants. We’ll also try some samples that Vivienne has made in advance e.g. wild herbal cordial, wild food pesto, fresh salad. A treat for the palate, the mind, body & soul. We don’t walk far: it’s a lovely little shuffle in the fresh air discovering and nibbling on the local plants. These walks are an excellent way to introduce you to the abundance of edible and medicinal plants that grow all around us. Walks go ahead rain or shine so please dress for the weather: sun hat, sun screen, wellies, waterpoofs as appropriate.
Can I bring my children/buggies/babies? This varies depending on the venue for the walk. Please check in advance with Vivienne.
Can I bring my dog? No sorry, I don’t allow dogs on foraging walks. Dog poo and picking wild plants to eat don’t mix!!

*There must be a reasonable and safe ratio of responsible adults to children and it is up to Vivienne to judge this. 1 adult to 2 children is usually fine. Vivienne monitors this closely so that everyone has a chance to enjoy these walks and events. If you would like to book to bring children with you and require further advice from Vivienne (e.g. re. terrain, duration of walk, buggies and pushchairs etc.) then please contact her before booking firstname.lastname@example.org
