Join us for a Spring Herb Walk with Sarah Hawkins, Friday 25th March at 10am!

Theatre and Dance NI are pleased to be running the fifth in person session as part of our Mental Health and Wellbeing Series, supported by Belfast City Council.

Led by Registered Herbalist Sarah Hawkins, you will learn all about the different wild and edible plants that grow all around us, how to identify them, their traditional use as food or medicine, and how to sustainably forage for them.

You will also learn about the Irish and British Folklore around the plants, bringing some of the forgotten stories of our Ancestors back to life.

We will be meeting at the small car park located on the left of the Belfast castle when looking towards the hill and will be heading up the path into the forest when the walk begins. Click here for the google maps pin.

Please note that we are not meeting at the Belfast Castle!

The weather is hopefully going to be dry but please dress appropriately to keep yourself warm and dry and wear sensible footware.
