Foraging in Wivenhoe Park

Join Lora Aziz – wildcrafter, artist and author – for a foraging walk around Wivenhoe Park, followed by arts activities back at Art Exchange.

Lora will lead us on a foraging expedition around Wivenhoe Park. We will identify local plants including which ones are edible, medicinal and used in a variety of traditional ways. Together we will gather plants as we explore the natural wonders of Wivenhoe Park.

We will then head back to Art Exchange for arts activities inspired by what we’ve found. We'll even see if we can make a cuppa with some of the plants we've foraged!

Admission Free - all welcome. There's no need to book, just drop by. Do consider wearing sensible shoes as the parkland can be muddy in places if it’s been raining.

Arrive at Art Exchange and our team will show you where to find us in the park.
