Walking along the ancient paths, you’ll also hear a little of the history of the region, from pagan Druids to rampaging Knights

The tour blends simple foraging for seasonal herbs, nuts, and fruit along with leaves that taste like butterhead lettuce, flowers that can cured medieval virus’s, a huge array of wild herbs perfect for teas and tinctures. You’ll also discover which leaves turn to soap when they get wet! What flower cures a hangover and what tree was known as the Witches Tree for all the cures it holds!

You’ll learn about Ogham, Celtic Druidic Tree Worship, and how the trees were protected within the Brehon Laws of old Ireland, with huge fines for damaging a “Noble of the Woods” And as if that wasn’t enough you’ll also be introduced to the “Wood Wide Web” as you learn how the trees communicate, grow communities, share resources and even see and count!
