Food for free from land and sea

In spring, plants are rapidly producing new, fresh growth and it’s an ideal time of year for foraging.

Find out what’s edible and useful in the wild during the spring by joining local horticulturist and past Parks and Gardens manager, Malcolm Cleal, for a fun and informal 3-hour land and seashore ramble around the beautiful Petit Bot valley and bay.

This part of Guernsey abounds with plants that have been used for hundreds of years as a source of food as well as for their medicinal properties.

The pristine sea also provides the right conditions for abundant growth of several edible seaweeds. Although not compulsory, there will be ample opportunity to participate in tasting all that’s found along the way and even in taking something for supper.

This walk includes sloping paths and the rocky seashore, so suitable footwear is recommended. £8 per person.

Meet at the Slipway at Petit Bot Bay in the parish of Forest.

£8 per person
