Spring Foraging & Wellness Day Retreat

The land speaks to us, telling stories with each green bud, cool breeze, and bird song. As we emerge from winter's hibernation, the earth awakens from her slumber, painting the world with vibrant hues of green and blossoming life.

Wild Ivy is collaborating with renowned foragers Alexandra Lea and Izzy Johns, and facilitator Rosie Hill to celebrate Beltaine and the flurries of Spring. Together, we’ll rest, set hopeful intentions, and cultivate your deep connection to wild nature.

Come, join us on this journey of discovery and rejuvenation as we embrace the beauty and wisdom of wild nature.

Testimonial

Nigel Barden - Feast February 2022

It was a marvellous, magical evening dressed beautifully with foraged wooden limbs and wild flowers, many of which were edible. The plant based dishes and drinks, were incredibly tasty and thoughtfully put together and it was lovely to see seasonal ingredients, such as wild garlic being used. Caroline and Rosie make you feel very welcome and relaxed and gathering round a large communal table makes for a convivial evening, with plenty of lively conversation.

Fantastic day at Wild Ivy. So relaxing after a busy week. Felt truly looked after, food was off the chart and came home feeling chilled and refreshed. Loved dabbling in a little art with natural foraged items to make beautiful dream catcher. Thank you so much Caroline and Rosie

Absolutely magical day. Every detail was considered, delicious food, beautiful setting and incredibly talented hosts. Such a treat to take a day out and completely switch off to connect with fabulous people. We will most certainly be back, this is a really special place.

Dorothy - July 2021
Disconnect to Reconnect

It would be hard to select my favourite part of the day, but I particularly liked the closing moments: sitting in a tepee, being given a piece of paper embedded with wild flower seeds so we could write our intentions before planting the paper so the wild flowers could germinate along with our intentions. How special is that!

It was a gentle thoughtful convivial enjoyable mindful productive interesting yummy day and one which I would have no hesitation in recommending to others. The vegan food served with attention to detail and care was delicious to non vegans too.

Thank you for such a wonderful day, you have both created something so so special. It was such a joy! 

Carly, The Wishing Tree
December 2021

The mix of activities (a foraging walk, making Christmas decorations, guided meditation) were seasonal, environmentally friendly and very well run arrived after a chaotic week and left feeling centred, balanced, grounded and re-energised. I will be booking onto more of these in the new year. Highly recommend. the
