PLEASE NOTE: 29 SEPT 2018 WALK IS NOW FULL! NEXT WALK IS SPRING 2019.
Discover FREE FOOD for life with our wild food foraging walk by the river in York city. On this two hour walk you will learn facts about approx. 25 edible plants and trees, how to harvest and prepare them, together with the benefits and caveats involved in Wild Food Foraging. Under 14’s are FREE. We meet under Skeldergate Bridge, next to St Georges Fields Car/Coach Park where there is a loo and pay and display parking. This is near Cliffords Tower, next to the river. We meet under the bridge then walk down to the Millennium Bridge. The walk will run in rain. Di has been running Wild Harvest Foraging walks for over 12 years now, starting on the North Yorkshire Moors/Dales and running walks for the Forestry Commission and the Moors centres and selling her hedgerow herbal teas and cordials through them.
Wild Harvest is a member of the Association of Foragers. If you choose another company to provide you with a wild food walk please do check how long they have been doing business and if they are an Association of Foragers Member – this will give you reassurance, as correct information and the effective teaching of it are essential for this subject !
Wild Food Walk Testimonial
“I found Diane’s wild food walk inspirational in changing my outlook on weeds such as nettles and dandelions into informative suggestions in preparing these foods for maximum benefit. I went on this wild food walk wanting to expand my knowledge of survival skills for future-proofing oneself in a worst-case scenario and found it to be just what I was looking for…Diane is a very calm and patient teacher. Diane has a real passion for teaching these things as she has lived and breathed self-sufficiency for many many years.”
