Classes, Courses & Workshops
The Weir Garden Spring Foraging Courses
The Weir Garden is a beautiful National Trust property boasting a lovely riverside garden, mature trees and even some ancient Roman ruins.
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 teaching you how to identify the different Spring plants, flowers and mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for homemade refreshment such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
After the walk we'll end the day with a light 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.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
