Live and Dye Garden: Walk with Mark Spencer

Thu 30 Jun 2022
Coventry Cathedral
Priory Street, Coventry, CV1 5AB
Duration: 11am - 1pm & 1pm - 3pm

Dr Mark Spencer, an experienced and internationally respected botanist is returning to Coventry for another short series of critical plant walks within the Cathedral Quarter.

His expertise covers many disciplines including forensic botany, the plants of North-west Europe, invasive species and the history of botanical science. He also works globally as a seasoned writer, public speaker and television presenter. He'll be joining us to lead a critical plant walk that looks at domesticated/wild plants of the area, focusing on crop wild relatives and incidental ‘wild’ weeds.

Hand lenses will be available for each participant and will be sterilised before and after each walk.

The walk will begin and end outside Coventry Cathedral and you can then visit Food Union and Coventry Cathedral's new ‘Live and Dye Garden’ and begin the process of making your own wild tincture.

These sessions will be limited to 10 people, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Access information

The walk will last approximately 75 minutes and will cover the 'Cathedral Quarter'. The route is wheelchair accessible, however, access to the Live and Dye garden is via stairs.
