Spring Foraging Course

A foraging walk, talk and lunch
28th April 2019


Description

Linton, on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye is an exciting new venue within easy reach from Monmouth, Ledbury, Gloucester and even Cheltenham. 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 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 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, 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.
