The event is expected to last several hours depending on weather conditions and how much fruit people want to collect.
As usual, we plan to bring a close to the event by toasting each others good health & sharing foraging tales in a local public house (yet to be decided). Sturdy footwear is a must. Gloves are optional, but recommended.
Please wear appropriate outdoor clothing for all events and as always... Bring your OWN BAGS!!
