Join us for an informative foraging walk where we will ID the various wild plants and mushrooms we find. Enjoy homemade refreshment along the way and a light 'Wild Food' lunch with us to finish the day.
Linton, on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye is within easy reach from Monmouth, Ledbury, Gloucester, Cheltenham and even Chepstow. St Mary’s churchyard is home to one of the oldest Yew trees in Britain believed to be well over 1,000 years old. We will meet at the Alma Inn, a beautiful village pub in the Herefordshire countryside. 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. Drinks are available from the pub. Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the village, 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 head back to the Alma Inn to 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. There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
