The Weir Garden is a beautiful National Trust property boasting a lovely riverside garden, mature trees and even some ancient Roman ruins. Being just outside Hereford this stunning venue is easy to reach from Weobley, Leominster, Hay-on-Wye, Bromyard, Kington and even Presteigne.
The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the gardens and along the River Wye, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will end the day with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
Please note that only assistance dogs are allowed in the Weir Garden.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.

Children welcome
