It is great to be able to plan events now with an element of confidence. It’s been really lovely to be able to lead walks and meet lots of lovely people again since last summer. Most organisers are still wary of overly large gatherings, so bookings are usually required, even for free events. Please honour your booking, as “no-shows” mean that someone else loses out – if you can’t make it, please let me or the organisers know.
Saturday 2nd April and Sunday 1st May 2022 at 11:00
Broughgammon Farm, Ballycastle, Co. Antrim.
I’ve been invited back to lovely Broughgammon Farm to lead two springtime foraging walks around the farm. At this time of the year, there’s always plenty of succulent and tasty spring greens to be found, and Becky Cole will be on hand to dish out advice on some of the herbs as well. Tickets cost £24 each.
