Join Steve England, outdoor educator, Horticulturist and Historian, on this guided walk around the barn site and local nature reserve to forage for wild foods! This will be a small group so that you can benefit from Steve’s guidance and expertise on what to pick…and what not!
This walk will very much be determined by what is found along the way and so is likely to be different every time.
Please make sure you dress sensibly in comfortable, suitable clothing and wear sturdy footwear.
Due to the foraging nature of this walk it is for over 18s only.
After approximately 3 hours out with Steve you will return to The Barn for tea & coffee and to make a tasty snack from your finds.
The Barn will be open on arrival for use of the facilities and to check everyone in.
About your guide: “All my life I have loved the outdoors. Growing up in Bristol, my childhood was spent exploring the fields and woodlands of Stoke Park, fascinated by every tree, plant, bird & butterfly. I decided to continue my learning with the RHS, studying horticulture alongside teaching myself everything there was to know about the wildlife and history on my doorstep. I began teaching what I had learned over 10 years ago to friends, local people and my local community, and absolutely love sharing everything I know. Whether foraging foods, learning poisonous plants, lighting fires, recognising birds, identifying bats or looking back in time at the history of North Bristol, I come alive when in front of an audience and thrive on sharing my knowledge with others.”
Steve England Outdoor Learning provides outdoor adult education events, courses and workshops within North Bristol.
