Kidsgrove Canal Nature Recovery Walks
Take a walk – or four!
Reconnecting with nature and water is a great way to banish the winter blues! From November to March, Appetite and artist Anna Francis are hosting a series of nature-inspired walks along the Trent and Mersey canal at Kidsgrove.
Each walk will have something different. As the seasons progress into deep winter you’ll explore the changes in the landscape with fellow walkers as well as some very special guests. Whether you are interested in foraging, nature or simply joining a friendly activity with others in your neighbourhood, Anna wants you to come along for the walk!
The first Kidsgrove Canal Nature Recovery Walk took place on Saturday 11 November. You can read all about it in our blog, where you can also download a free guide to the walk including information on the plant species you will see.
Sunday 10 December 1 – 3pm Foraging Walk
On this winter foraging walk you will be joined by forager and fermenter Emma Cronin of Wild Pickle. Along the way you will note the surprising number of things that can be foraged in December, and also get an overview of the Forager’s Code of Practice.
Saturday 13 January 11am – 1pm Biodiversity Walk
Artist Anna and the group will be joined on this walk by a special guest! Andrea Ku is a beekeeper and biodiversity specialist of B4Biodiversity, whose aim is to raise the awareness of urban biodiversity through educational, practical, and creative projects. During this deep winter walk you wil explore what is happening in the landscape at this time of year.
Saturday 3 February 11am – 1pm Group Walk: Anna leads another walk on the theme of the natural environment of the canal as a green asset for Kidsgrove.
Saturday 2 March 12 – 3.30pm Foraging & Biodiversity: For the final walk in the series there will be a focus on foraging and biodiversity. PLUS you will walk along the path of the Staffs University Fine Art Student Art Trail, and have the opportunity to get involved with a hands-on activity.
