The Weir Garden is one of the National Trust’s most beautiful Herefordshire properties, running alongside the famous River Wye. The variety of veteran trees provide the perfect environment for a range of interesting mushrooms and plants to grow.

The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes.

Then you set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the gardens and along the River Wye, learning how to identify the different plants and mushrooms found.

Along the way stop for some seasonal homemade refreshments, such as wild garlic & hogweed soup.

After the walk, the day will end with a tasty wild food lunch based on what is found and some pre-prepared homemade treats.

After the course, you will receive an email list of everything talked about on the day to help you to remember what you have learnt.

There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
