A circular two hour walk led by guide Pete Yeo. Departing from the Countryside Centre and peaking on Braunton’s Beacon Trail, with its stunning views over the heart of the North Devon Biosphere Reserve. Aside from a scenic walk rich in wellbeing, Pete will invite contemplation of the biocultural footprint of horticulture in this area, touching on gardening styles, exotic plants gone wild, and climate change, amongst other things. Looking ahead too, what could the future hold for our relationship with plants, and how might we meet it well?
