At long last, foraging events are now beginning to be organised, now that lock-down is easing off. Naturally, I will still be vigilant, and all events will have some risk assessment carried out to minimise Covid risks. So read on, to see what events are in store. As there seems to be a pent-up desire for activities, and numbers may be limited, some of these events will be booked up pretty quickly.

Foraging Walk

Saturday 12th June 2021
Kinedale Donkeys, Chestnut Rd., Ballynahinch, Co. Down.

This new venue is intriguing, as it comprises a donkey sanctuary on a farm near Ballynahinch run by Robert Wallace, with a lovely stream, recently planted woodland, and lots of donkeys? There should be plenty of stuff to forage for and learn, and did I mention that there are donkeys?  It costs £20 per person, including tea/coffee. Please book your place by visiting https://www.kinedaledonkeys.co.uk/bookings-checkout/farm-forage-walk/book

 

Foraging Walk

Borne from the Mourne, Ballynagappogue Rd. near Rathfriland, Co. Down.

Join Dermot for a foraging walk around the farm at Mark Rodger’s “Borne from the Mourne” allotment in rural Co. Down. We’ve been doing these walks for several years now, so it’s great to be back. The atmosphere is lovely, and there’s plenty to see. Contact Mark by email at bornefromthemourne@gmail.com to secure a place (there is a charge).
