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

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

  • digital information sheet sent after the course
     

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
