In the Middle Ages, the monks of Brecon Priory would have undoubtedly been skilled in gardening and herbs. The people of Brecon would also have foraged for food as a matter of course. These days, we have largely lost this old knowledge, forgetting how much we can gather for free around us.
Local resident Adele Nozedar has a passion for foraging and teaching others how to foraging. She runs Brecon Beacons Foraging, which offers opportunities for people to learn about how to forage in the countryside. Adele has written numerous books and has spoken at major events like the Hay Festival.
You can join Adele of Brecon Beacons Foraging to see just how many different edible and delicious wild plants we can find in the grounds of the Cathedral! We predict there will be lots, many of which you will have seen on a daily basis but maybe know nothing about. Lasting approx 45 minutes, the walks are suitable for all ages and abilities including wheelchairs, mobility vehicles, scooters and spacehoppers (so long as you don’t squash the plants.
Booking for these sessions are free but spaces are limited. So book your tickets early.
