Hereford, Weir Gardens Spring Foraging Course
  • The Weir Garden, Swainshill, Hereford.
    HR4 7QF
  • Friday 19th April 11:00am until 2:30pm
Join us for an informative foraging walk, where we will discuss and ID the various edible and poisonous wild plants and mushrooms we find. Enjoy a homemade refreshment along the way and a light 'Wild Food' lunch with us at the end of the day.

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 Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
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, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto.
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.
