Our leisurely coastal herb walk follows a lesser known “off the beaten track” route around Mawgan Porth, that will take us far away from the holiday crowds. We’ll explore the flora and medicinal plants growing in the local woodland, before heading down the coastal path to greet the hardy plants that thrive on the cliff tops. Depending on seasonal tide times, there may also be an opportunity to explore the edible seaweeds that grow abundantly in the shallow rock pools below the cliffs.
The walk will begin promptly at 10 am and lasts approximately one and a half hours. During that time, you’ll be introduced to the diversity and abundance of local medicinal and edible plants, along with the history and folklore of the local area. At the end of our adventure, we’ll regroup at the start point, where we will pause for tea, refreshments and a relaxing, informal meditation.
Please note that the event is hosted entirely outdoors. During hot weather it is advisable to come prepared with sun protection and a water bottle.
For the enjoyment of everyone attending, participant numbers are strictly limited. Although the circular route takes in an easy going terrain which is suitable for most people in good health, the coastal herb walk is quite rugged in places, and so is not recommended for people who may have physical conditions that will restrict their enjoyment of the experience. Unfortunately the nature of this particular trail means it is unsuitable for wheelchair users.
For the comfort of the group, dogs are not allowed on the walk. The nature walk is not recommended for children under the age of 16.
