Stratford Foraging Course
About this course
Discover the mushrooms and edible plants growing in the UK in autumn on this Foraging Course near Wellesbourne, Warwickshire. Held entirely in mixed woodland, this venue is ideal for learning about wild edibles in autumn. Due to the time of year, this course is expected to be predominantly fungi-focused.
It is within easy reach of Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham, Solihull, Royal Leamington Spa, Coventry, Warwick, Banbury, Redditch, Stow-on-the Wold and Worcester.
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 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
digital information sheet after the course
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.
