ABOUT THE COURSE

Linton, on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye is a lovely little village, within easy reach of 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.

Our courses begin with a short introduction to Wild Food UK, what to expect from your day and a brief of the general countryside codes, including our Foraging Code.

Heading off at a leisurely pace around the grounds, your instructor will teach you how to safely identify the different species of edible and poisonous plants and mushrooms that you discover.

This exploration will take about 2.5hrs, during which we’ll take a break for a homemade refreshment, such as our warming Hogweed & Wild Garlic soup or Elderflower Champagne!

After the walk we will end the day with a tasty Wild Food meal. This will include a selection of foraged homemade treats created by your instructor, and a dish made with what we have collected during the walk.
All of our food is seasonal, so what you are served depends on what is growing at that time of year. In Spring we will be making use of the fresh wild greens and in Autumn, the array of tasty wild mushrooms that the area has to offer.

You will receive a comprehensive set of Wild Food UK ‘course notes’ a few days after your course. This email will contain links and articles relating to the plants and mushrooms we discovered, or discussed during the day.

If you’re looking to make a weekend of it why not stay in one the beautiful White House Cottages in rural Herefordshire!
