Oct 6th 2012, 11am to approx 3pm.
Transition Town BH is joining with Down to Earth Bushcraft to present a Wild food walk near Studland, Isle of Purbeck this October.
We’ll start off from the Bankes Arms pub in Studland at 11am and meander along th
e cliff tops and through some woodland to Old Harry’s Rocks, stopping to sample some of Mother Nature’s autumnal bounties. We’ll keep it fairly fluid but will stop for lunch (bring your own) and aim to return to the pub by about 3 o’clock where those who want to can relax and have a drink.
It’s not compulsory, but feel free to join the bike convoy (details below). Alternatively, if you can offer a lift, or would like one, contact Will and he will pay someone write my paper endeavour to match you up – contact details on www.downtoearthbushcraft.com . Unfortunately the Bournemouth-Swanage bus will not be running at this time of year.
Price: £7 waged, £4 unwaged (half the money will go in the TTBH pot and the other half to Will at Down to Earth for leading the event). Places can be booked online at http://wildwalk.eventbrite.com and are limited to 18.
We’ll endeavour to go whatever the British weather but if it is really looks bleak we have a backup date of Oct 13th. Please check our website a co
uple of days before the event to get the go ahead: http://transitionbh.org
