If you’d like to come on a foraging walk, there’s usually something going on if you look at the Events Page. If not, I’m happy to take out groups as small as one person or as large as 20-25. The more people that come along, the cheaper the cost per individual.
These walks are not at all strenuous; we’re not on a route march. Foraging is all about looking for detail, a concentrations on the plants – and, indeed, animals and insects – that we’d stride past under different circumstances.
I can adapt walks to suit all ages and abilities, and have also found that a wheelchair can be a distinct advantage; you’re at the perfect height to see more than the rest, and at the right level for picking!
Also, foraging doesn’t have to stop in the winter months. You’d be surprised at how versatile our plant life is, so unless there’s snow on the ground or it’s simply too cold, there’s always a chance to forage!
If you’d like me to come and do a talk to your group, again, I can adapt to all sizes of audience and all age ranges. I try to keep my costs at a level £40 per hour, plus travel if I’m asked to go further than a 20 mile round trip. If you ask me to work for free and I refuse, please don’t be offended. I undertake a number of charity events every year (of my own choosing).
Incidentally, I also do food demos and can talk till the cows come home about sweets, too!
