Linton, on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye is an exciting new venue for us.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 charming Alma Inn at 12pm and the course starts there with an introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
After the talk we will set off for a 2-3 hour walk around the local area, identifying the different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the walk for some lovely homemade refreshments such as our wild food soup or even some elderflower champagne.
Then it’s back to the Alma Inn for a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This could include a fresh salad picked on the walk and hopefully some creamy wild mushrooms.
After the walk we will email all of you details of all the plants and mushrooms we find to help you remember what you have learnt.
