Guided Seasonal Woodland Foraging Walk

30th September @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Come and enjoy the nature and the wonderful, magical countryside that surrounds the little village of Ballinakill. See the wild plants that grow at different times of the year and learn how to identify them and use them to boost your families health. Give yourself some quiet time in nature or maybe share it with a friend. Turn off your phone, step away from the busyness and spend the morning outside, immersed in nature, soaking up the green energy & Vitamin D and learning a little bit too.
