  • This trail is about the links between human needs and the world of plants. Follow the wooden waymarkers to hear more about how plants help us in our everyday lives.
     
    You can download a free pdf and listen to the audio trail here. Plants change every season, and so does this trail! You might not always be able to see the plants mentioned.
     
    You can pick this leaflet up for free at the Soanes Centre (arrange a time in advance during Covid, we're not always in). The price here is a small donation to our work.
