Herefordshire Weir Gardens Spring Foraging Course
Food and Drink
The Weir Gardens, Swainshill, Herefordshire HR4 7QF
We’re excited to be running our first Spring courses on the outskirts of Hereford by kind permission of the National Trust. The Weir Garden is a beautiful venue boasting a lovely riverside garden, mature trees and even some ancient Roman ruins. We’ll be meeting at the car park at 12pm for a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers. After the talk we’ll set off for a 2-3 hour walk identifying the different edible and poisonous Spring shoots, plants, flowers and mushrooms that we find. There will be breaks along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup. We will finish the day off 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 walk we will email you details of all the plants and mushrooms we find to help you remember what you have learnt. There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
