Event Details

An introduction to foraging with guided wild food walks exploring Tunbridge Wells Common, lasting around 2 hours. Using your senses, you will discover the flavours of the wild.

Sarah Watson, foraging tutor of Wild Feast, will show you a wealth of wild edible herbs, greens, fruit and seeds (maybe a few fungi too). She'll share ideas on ways to use them in dishes, preserves and booze infusions.

Sarah will help you become more confident in safely identifying edible wild plants, as well as showing you some to avoid.

There will be a few wild delicacies to taste on the way, such as preserves and drinks.

Times: 2 walks to choose from, 11am to 1pm or 3pm to 5pm. 

Meeting point: Chalybeate Spring at the Pantiles.

Children: Children are welcome, although foraging walks aren't suitable for all children, especially those under 8 years old. The walk will be slow-paced with a lot of talking.

Dogs: Even well-behaved dogs get bored on a slow-paced walk with lots of stops, so they are not allowed on this event, sorry!

Accessibility: The route may not be suitable for wheelchairs, prams and pushchairs.

Availability: A maximum of 25 places. Subject to availability, there may some tickets to purchase on the day.

Cancellation: Tickets are non-refundable, but you can pass your ticket(s) to someone else if you can't attend.
