Join our expert forager for an insightful walk around the beautiful Heligan garden and estate, to explore the abundance of our hedgerows, and the natural habitats around us.

Discover a wide range of edibles and learn about how to use them, recipes to create, their healing properties, along with how to identify toxic lookalikes and how to forage from nature sustainably.

From wild edibles to garden varieties, there’s so much to discover! The walk will finish at the estate Learning Den, where there will be foraged snacks to try, and a chance to question Emma about all things harvesting and eating from the wild.
