Classes, Courses & Workshops
Cardiff Spring Foraging Courses
This beautiful city centre park is surprisingly plentiful in wild plant, flower and mushroom species throughout the year.
We'll meet at the Castle Street entrance to the park outside the Pettigrew tearooms. The course begins 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 park and along the River Taff, teaching you how to identify the different Spring plants, flowers and 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 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 to help you to remember what you have learnt.
