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

 

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.

"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"

​The course includes:

Any samples given are 100% plant/fungi-based or have a 100% plant/fungi-based alternative.

 

The exact meeting location and park access details will given two days before the course date.

 

Participants must be aged 18 or over - sorry, no children under 18 or babes in arms on this course.

 

Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the course.

We cannot guarantee what species will be growing on any given course date. As a rough guide, Springtime and summer courses should be predominantly plant focused, with mushrooms sometimes found; Summer courses should also have fruits and flowers to learn about, and Autumn courses should be mostly mushroom-focused with a small amount of plants available
