Description

Discover the edible plants and mushrooms growing in the UK in summertime on this Foraging Course near Coventry, Warwickshire. Held on and around Warwickshire Wildlife Trust's headquarters at Brandon Marsh, with kind permission of the Trust. It is within easy reach of Birmingham, Banbury, Rugby, Hinckley, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon, Leicester and Nuneaton.

On this foraging walk, you will discover how to identify some commonly growing foods to forage for, and hints on where to look. When we meet up, we will go through laws and safety points of foraging before heading out to discover the wild food in the area.

​The course includes:

  • an overview of foraging laws and safety

  • exploration of the venue

  • introduction to a number of edible species

  • instruction on how to tell edible species apart from poisonous lookalikes

  • tips on harvesting

  • information on where to find these species again

  • recipe ideas

  • wild food treats to sample

  • digital information sheet after the course

Samples of tasty wild food treats can include soups, pestos, salts, pickles, syrups, cordials, jams, jellies, leathers, vinegars, and preserves, along the way. All are 100% plant/fungi-based or have a 100% plant/fungi-based alternative

Participants must be aged 18 or over - sorry, no babes in arms

Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the course
