Future Foraging - a family friendly foraging walk
A family friendly foraging walk for the curious and the committed, with Ian Edwards.
Time & Location
24 Aug 2023, 14:00 – 16:00
Chapter House, St Mary’s Cathedral, Palmerston Pl, Edinburgh EH12 5AW, UK
Join Ian Edwards, passionate forager, ecologist and Research Associate, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, for a family friendly foraging walk along the Water of Leith. Foraging for even a small part of our diet can make a significant improvement to our health and connects us in a very direct way with the living world all around us. The Water of Leith is home for a diverse range of edible and useful plants, all with interesting stories. What can we learn from the past and what potential is there for wild plants to sustain us in the future?
Meeting in the A+E project space, located in the Chapter House at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, the walk will briefly engage with the Cathedral grounds before moving to the Water of Leith where the main forging walk will take place.
This is a family friendly event – all ages welcome (children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult).
Free, but a recommended minimum donation of £3.50 to cover running costs is encouraged. If you can afford to pay more, please do. Booking via Eventbrite.
