Birmingham Foraging Course

About this course 
 

Situated south of Birmingham, Moseley Park is beautifully maintained gated greenspace with plenty of species to discover on a foraging course.

This former Victorian pleasure park, once a part of the Moseley Hall estate, is now only accessible to its members. 

 

This foraging course venue is easy to get to from Birmingham, Solihull, Coventry, Redditch, Stourbridge, West Bromwich, Coventry and Wolverhampton.

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 (subject to Covid restrictions):
 

  • an overview of foraging laws and safety best practice

  • 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 sample/s such as soup, jam, jelly, pesto, ferments, vinegar or cordial

  • digital information sheet after the course

 

Well what a fantastic course! I learned many new things and Kerry kept me interested throughout the afternoon. She is very knowledgeable and shares her vast knowledge with you. I’m looking forward to doing my next course with her and tasting her yummy vinegars, preserves and other foraged delights. I’d definitely recommend this course 10/10"
