Map to start point:
Foraging for food and using plants as medicine or for many other uses was common up until very recently. This short walk will introduce you to these plants and how to use them and identify them safely. It’s going to be fun ! You don’t need any prior knowledge but if you have tried foraging before or have any wild food tales or recipes we’d love to hear about them on the walk.
This is a fantastic small but biodiverse green space in Dursley though seldom visited by those not from the immediate area. There is a Holy well on the site and within living memory people would visit it and collect water.
