Event Details

An introduction to foraging on a guided wild food walk exploring Tunbridge Wells Common, lasting around two and a half hours.

Discover the flavours of the wild with Sarah Watson, foraging tutor of Wild Feast. She'll show you a wealth of wild edible herbs, fruit and seeds (maybe a few fungi too), sharing ideas on ways to use them in dishes, preserves and booze infusions. Sarah will help you become more confident in foraging edible wild plants in a safe and sustainable way. 

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

Time: 10am to approximately 12.30pm

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. It's a slow-paced walk with a lot of talking, aimed at an adult audience.

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 or pushchairs.

Availability: A maximum of 18 places. Strictly 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.
