Where the Wild Things Grow

Clonaslee Culture Night

Are you interested in plants, wild food or in discovering new ways of using the wild plants around you? Mary Bulfin, foraging facilitator and maker of wild food, and Heather Rice photographer and nature lover, invite you to join them as they share their knowledge and interest in wild plants. The event includes a guided walk starting in Brittas Wood, to find and identify edible plants, plants with medicinal or other properties such as natural dye or fibre sources. The 1hr walk will finish at Clonaslee Heritage Centre for a chat and some local food and beverages from local foodies Hikers & Bikers aka the Sweeney sisters. This event is open to all ages. We particularly encourage intergenerational family groups to come along and share your curiosity and knowledge about wild plants.  This event will start at the entrance to Brittas Forest in Clonaslee at 4pm for a 1hr walk.  As we’ll be outdoors please wear weather appropriate clothing and shoes.
