Our Sunday is devoted to finding out about our local hillside walks. We will get to know some of the most frequent types of wild plants of our area amongst which is Wild Mustard. We will also find the first examples of wild orchids a precious gift of our habitat. This will be a journey through our countryside inherited from our fore-fathers, winding through gentle hills coloured with wild flowers, passing by old churches and old farm houses.
