Foraging and Nature Connection Walk

  • Workshop

Join Oonagh O’Dwyer of the Wild Kitchen, Lahinch, for a wild plant walk where you will learn to identify and taste seasonal wild food and make nature-based utensils. 

The walk will be followed by a workshop on how to use wild plants in a creative way. Participants will learn how to make items such as cleaver baskets, a wildflower cordial drink, and flower crowns, as well as how to collect wild flower seeds.

Participants will also learn about the biodiversity of our hedgerows and meadows, and the importance of wild flowers as food for pollinators and as a food source for birds and small mammals. 

This workshop will help children to discover the amazing biodiversity of our precious hedgerows and learn about the many species of animals and plants that need hedgerows for shelter, food and as a home.

There will also be a plant ID quiz and plant-spotters game. All materials will be supplied. Meet in the car park of the Falls Hotel, Ennistymon, near the donkeys.

This event is free but places are limited so booking is essential. Book now by contacting info@wildkitchen.ie
