Description

Guided walks for all ages and abilities to discover what nature can offer us, be it edible, medicinal or practical.

Everything that grows in our environment has its place and purpose.  From the roots in the earth on which we stand, to the leaves of the trees above us, nature provides a spectacular and varied bounty, just waiting to be discovered by all.

Suitable for all levels of mobility, these guided walks explore the full range of Northern Ireland’s scenery, from lush and fertile farmland, woodland, pasture, lakeshore, upland heath and moorland, all of which offer a plethora of seasonal produce to harvest and prepare.  Northern Ireland’s pristine spaces, with clear air, clean water and unpolluted by-ways, are a forager’s paradise, and each walk brings you close to fruiting bushes, hedgerow herbs, mature native trees, wild flowers and fungi, as well as practical, poisonous and medicinal plants in abundance.

The tours also offer a unique opportunity to taste and explore new and unexpected flavours, using seasonally available ingredients foraged along the way.  Although seasonal varieties do change, the views are always spectacular over lakeland, loughs, city and shipyards.  Each tour begins with a geographical orientation, discussing the impact of micro- and macro-climates and terra forma on the development of the world around us.  Then look at the diversity of nature below, above and beside us, including native woods, parkland, hedgerow herbs, fruiting bushes, edible flowers and wild fungi, as well as practical, poisonous and medicinal plants galore.
