Sat 8th June 10am-3pm
Explore the beautiful Chew Valley on this guided wild food walk with expert plantsman Dave Hamilton. Dip into nature’s larder and go home bursting with tips on making everyday meals a little more 'wild’. Wild food snacks (and recipe cards) will be available on the day but bring some food to share for a midday picnic with fellow walkers.
We will be starting the walk from The Community Farm where we will explore what wild wonders we have around our fields. We will then continue on around the local area including Chew Valley Lake.
