Devil’s Dyke wild food walk, talk and picnic

The Last Picnic

Friday 20th July, 10:30–13:30

Learn how our ancestors foraged for food and medicinal herbs at spectacular Devil’s Dyke where people have lived off the land for thousands of years. We’ll be taking a walk around Devil’s Dyke and pointing out the plants from the tasty and not so tasty, to those that are poisonous or have medicinal benefits. Finish off by enjoying your picnic overlooking some of the best views in Sussex. Booking essential.

Wildlife and the Planning Process

Wildlife and the Planning Process

Woods Mill, Wednesday 27th June 2018 6:30pm–9:00pm

Are your neighbours considering a development? What protected species are most suitable for disrupting their plans? How can you get the critters to take up residence on their land? How can you best document their presence in ways that will persuade the planning authority to veto the project? Sadly, this brief course does not directly address these fundamental questions. But attending it will be much cheaper than hiring ecoNIMBY Associates LLC and you may learn something relevant to your campaign.
