Family Foraging Walk

*****PLEASE NOTE THAT FORAGING FORTNIGHT HAS BEEN POSTPONED*******

Due to the current health situation, Foraging Fortnight has been postponed and will now run from 29th August until 13th September. We will post updated dates shortly.
Thank you for your understanding. 

As part of Foraging Fortnight, come along to this Family Foraging walk of 2.5 hours on Sat 9th May – 10am-12.30pm. It’s great for children to learn about plants and the many edibles out there, so this is a chance for the whole family to get involved and become familiar with tasty edibles. We will go on a foraging walk through the Carmichael Estate to look for Springs treats. We will identify flowers, plants, some trees and discuss their medicinal and culinary uses and taste some along the way.

This an Introduction to Foraging walk, and is suitable for children age 6+ only please (5yo may be ok but you know your child, if you think they will be able to get involved. Babes in arms/ sling should be fine). This is purely because 1-5 yos can get easily distracted on these kind of walks and parents can miss out on valuable information, especially related to important safety issues (it has happened before!)

Please ensure to bring waterproofs (just in case!) and wear suitable sturdy footwear.
