The Weir Gardens Summer Foraging Courses
  • The Weir Garden, Swainshill, Hereford.
    HR4 7QF
Join us for an informative foraging walk, where we will identify the various plants and mushrooms we find. Enjoy a homemade refreshment along the way and a light Wild Food lunch with us after the walk.

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.
