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

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