We're going picking! At this time of year, as the days get shorter and colder, it's SUPER important to take care of ourselves and do every little thing to stay Well + Wild... so we're going picking rosehips! These Vitamin C berries are delicious in winter cordials.... After the walk we'll be sharing tips on how you can process them to make your own winter remedies. Wear sensible footwear and check the forecast, we'll pick rain or shine. Join us at the gate on the corner of Holden Close and Stevens Road at noon and we'll walk in together. For those who feel up to it, after we pick, we'll travel by public transport back to Company Drinks HQ to process the hips and share a cup of tea and slice of cake.

All ages welcome! We’ll provide scissors / clippers and some gloves, but be careful of the rose horns. Children are to be accompanied by an adult. If you’ve got any questions about the picking walk, email Shaun on shaun@companydrinks.info
