Summer picking is back and we will be heading over to the wonderful Eastbrookend Country Park to collect the delicious Elderflower to use in our cordials and sodas. Come and learn some sustainable foraging techniques and an easy to make cordial recipe, Also joining us will be the amazing Ida Fabrizo for a wild session in the afternoon with wildcrafting and some wild songs to go with it

We’ll be meeting at the Eastbrookend Discovery Centre (formerly the Millenium Centre) at 12pm. Please wear comfortable shoes, check the forecast and bring waterproofs, sunscreen etc. Please feel free to bring your own packed lunch and plenty of water, we will provide some drinks for when we finish picking. Please note that we’ll be walking a little more than usual because the usable Elder trees are a little way further away this year, so consider this for accessibility. We recommend comfortable footwear and bringing walking sticks etc. Please let our team know if you need to take a seat or hang back. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
