Join us this summer in this unique foraging walk experience.

Over a fragrant summer’s morning, we will meander the hedgerows, rivers, woodland and moors of Kelburn Castle, learning about the many wild plants and animals who live there.

This foraging walk is an opportunity rest and observe the wild plants and animals that surround us. By slowing things down, we will move in the rhythm of our ancestors, taking time to notice the wild plants that provide us with an abundance of food and medicine.
The three hour walk begins outside the castle from where we will explore three diverse habitats – garden, woodland and glen. An adventure into the rich blossoming of summer, we will learn how to cook and make medicine with the plants we find, as well as how to safely identify those that can cause harm.
At the close of the walk we will share a range of foraged snacks – leaving you with an understanding of how to make healing teas, food and medicine with the potently powerful summer plants we are blessed with at this time of year.

We hope you will gain:

• A relationship with over 15 wild plants, as well as any poisonous ones encountered
• Knowledge of some of Inverclyde’s wild and beautiful flora and fauna
• Methods of preparation to make herbal remedies at home
• A sense of confidence in your own foraging practice
• A relationship with wild plants that will last a lifetime
