The Spring Equinox is a special moment in nature’s calendar. It is one of only two times of the year that day and night are of equal length. Join Lea and Kay for a guided walk through the beautiful woodland and grounds of the Hawarden Estate, starting and ending at our campfire circle under the trees. We will be looking at the emerging woodland and hedgerow plants, using field guides to identify unfamiliar species and searching for tracks and signs of wild animals.
Lea and Kay will also share their knowledge of fresh spring plants that can be picked and eaten for a tasty snack, added to a salad, or made into a soothing tea to help cleanse and detoxify the body. So, be sure to bring your foraging basket 🙂
Along the way we will make time for a Sit Spot in the woods for a chance to identify bird language and take closer notice of the changes happening in the woods around us. At the end of the walk we will share some hedgerow teas around the campfire together, enjoying community and celebrating this special time in the countryside year. So, take some quality time out for yourself and join us on this Spring Equinox Walk, a perfect way to welcome and celebrate the return of spring.
This guided walk is open to all ages. An adult ticket costs £20, accompanied children aged 5-16 pay just £5 each and accompanied children under 5 come free.
The walk is unsuitable for prams. If you have any mobility issues please get in touch with us before making a booking so we can discuss whether this event would be suitable for you.
