About the Event

Come along to an Introduction to Foraging Walk and begin your own foraging journey! Explore the incredible abundance of wild edibles, as we take a walk through a large area of open green space behind Nelson Village in Cramlington. This is a more indepth course style event designed for complete beginners or those looking to boost their confidence with wild food foraging.

It  is a common belief that you need to live deep in the countryside to  enjoy foraging, but once you start to look closer  at the small pockets of green spaces hiding in plain sight around towns and cities, you’ll  wonder why you never saw it all before!
