Picking Trips

Visit Valence House Gardens

Lorna Orr is giving us a tour of Valence House Garden which has a large herbal garden and a fruit allotment - all organic. We'll be picking some of the herbs and leaves and try some new flavours for our cordials.

We’re finding more and more sources of natural flavours to harvest. This week we’ll be meeting at Park Centre to learn how to tap birch trees for syrup, which we’ll use for making our new cordials this season.
