Join Shaun at Eastbrookend Country Park on Saturday 7th August for a Blackberry Foraging Walk! We'll show you how to forage delicious, juicy blackberries, safely and responsibly, leaving plenty for the bees. Go on a guided walk round the park, pick delicious juicy berries for Company Drinks cordials (and take some home for yourselves), Shaun may even have some DIY cordial making tips for you to try and make your own. This is a great opportunity to learn about the edible, natural resources on offer in our local green spaces.
