2022 Herb Walks with Sarah:
All walks start at 10.00 am
All the walks will take between 3 – 4 hours depending on the herbs. The walks are undertaken at your own risk – it’s important to wear appropriate foot wear and clothing ( it will be possible to get wet on all these walks) as well as bringing along a drink and something to snack on. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The walks will be cancelled if its wet but might be OK if it’s only drizzling.
There is a small charge of £5 per adult, children are welcome as long as they bring an adult with them, dogs are optional.
Herb Walks are an opportunity to go for a walk, usually in the South Lakes area, with a local herbalist. Booking is essential because I like to keep the numbers to about 10, any more than this and it becomes difficult for everyone to see and hear what’s going on. Wear walking boots and bring wet weather gear plus a drink and sandwiches. Sometimes we will be able to sample some of the plants as we walk – bring some bead and butter for this purpose. (or similar).
Always phone a couple of hours before the start of the walk if you are unsure about the weather, I will walk in a light drizzle but nothing heavier than this – you just can’t see the herbs in driving rain. Obviously all walks are undertaken at your own risk. I’ve been guiding herb walks for over 5 years and I haven’t lost anyone yet, but you need to be realistic about the level of walking you can manage.
