Time Travelling with Plants

During this fun and interactive workshop, you will have the opportunity to explore different botanical groups looking at how each have evolved over time and, by doing so, created unique habitats, ecological niches as well as influence our climates and create opportunities for other species to evolve.

The physical characteristics of each group of plants will be examined and the identification of a handful of plants in each category will be looked at. Depending on the weather, half the day will be spent inside and half outside.

From moss to mocha coffees… the story of plants is one that is ever fascinating, and a journey Jennie looks forward to sharing with you.

Who is this workshop for?
Nature lovers, forest school leaders, bushcraft practitioners, tree surgeons, gardeners, eco therapists and forest bathing guides, anyone with a curious mind and love of the outdoors. No botanical experience needed!

The nearest train station is Forres and a shuttle service will be put on for those who want to travel by train.

What to Bring:
– Warm clothes for when we head outside
– Walking boots
– Shoes to change to for inside
– Waterproofs
– Notebook
– Lunch and snacks (though there is a fabulous cafe at Logie steading that you can get good food from too)

*please can you let Jennie know of any additional learning needs (i.e. dyslexia) or medical conditions prior to the start of the course.
