Foraging Workshop and Balsam Bashing - Rossmill

Sunday 9 June 2024.

Foraging Workshop and Balsam Bashing - Rossmill


Alongside our regular balsam bashing events we are trialling a partnership with Forager Jim, from Forage Box, who will be running a foraging section of the event for a heavily discounted price. All we ask in return is that you help out by pulling up a little balsam.

This workshop is designed to get you as involved as possible - this includes identifying, picking and tasting a range of wild plants that will be found on the day, along with as much Himalayan Balsam removal as you like! This time we are in the Bowdon area, foraging and bashing in Rossmill. If you fancy coming along for the balsam bashing, but don't fancy foraging, it's FREE!

Booking and payment in advance is essential. Adults £11, children 18 or under, go free. Suitable for anyone over the age of 6. Free if you're just joining us for the Balsam Bashing.


Time: 10:00amĀ - 2:00pm.

Leader(s): Bollin Valley Partnership Ranger Emma and Forage Box
