After meeting at 11.30am at Wareham station (that’s about 2hrs 20mins direct from Waterloo or a similar drive if the traffic is good), we will head off for an afternoon of beach and seaside foraging, gathering various seaweeds at low tide, wild spinaches and other plentiful foreshore plants as well as numerous delicious coastal growing edibles. April is a wonderful month for foraging but the weather in the UK is totally unpredictable and that dictates what we can and can’t find, so I will be looking at all the available options much nearer the time but the majority of the walk will focus on the coast. Depending on the weather we may also do a riverside walk, take in some woodland to pick wild garlic or look at some very fertile areas of meadowland and floodplains. During this event we will be sampling various different wild foods but not doing any cooking. We will be exploring various different types of terrain, some quite rocky. When booking please advise whether you intend to drive or get the train…the beach location we are headed for is about 20 minutes drive from the initial meeting point so I’ll need to arrange additional transport if most people are coming by train.
Please be advised before booking, some of our forays may not be suitable for people with mobility difficulties so if in any doubt pleas email me in advance. In addition, please be aware that although these events run for approximately 3 hours, that could easily turn out to be 4 hours instead, so I urge you not to book a posh lunch somewhere timed precisely to coincide with the end of the walk, give yourself plenty of leeway.
