Foraging in St.Helens.

by Cat Woods

Yup, the world is re-opening, and we’re (carefully) beginning in-person events again…at a super lush location: Sankey Valley Blackbrook! 

Have you ever been foraging?

With lockdown ending we’ve got just the thing for you! On location foraging training in Sankey Valley, Blackbrook. 🌱 

Join myself and expert forager Wil Goodwin from the Liverpool/Merseyside foraging network, for a hands on session where we will be foraging for local edible plants

Foragers consistently share a range of benefits they receive, including: 

* free food that’s as fresh as the time it takes for you to pick it and plate it, 

* nutrients and a level of freshness that you wouldn’t get so easily from shop-bought food, 

* a wide range of surprising ingredients, offering more diversity and flavours, 

* the element of surprise and adventure, never knowing exactly what you’ll find or where!

You will need shoes for walking as we’ll be covering a bit of ground, a bottle of water and something to collect your edible finds. 

You will learn new green skills that you can use whenever you are out in the future and reap the benefits of doing so. There is no junk food in nature. 

Tickets are just £15 plus booking fee.

Duration 1.5 hours of Wil’s expertise and experience. 

Suitable for adults.

Meeting is at the entrance to Sankey Valley, Blackbrook at 10am (Behind the Ship Inn) 275 Blackbrook road, WA11 0AB.

Free Parking available. 

You can find tickets to these events on our Facebook page under the events tab.
