Event description
The beautiful 60-acre estate at Buzzards Valley,  located south of Tamworth, Staffordshire, in the Canwell Valley, offers meadows, hedgerows, ancient woodland, coniferous plantation and waterways to be explored on a foraging course.
Buzzards Valley is family run and the estate includes a vineyard, winery, gin distillery, shop (selling all manner of yummy things), bistro, fishing lakes, and dried flower and home inspiration wholesale. So, there is plenty to do before and after the course if you want to make a day of it!
