Learn about the array of edible plants and mushrooms growing all around us in the UK in the historic village of Baginton, near Coventry, Warwickshire. On this walk, you'll discover how to identify some commonly growing foods to forage for, and hints on where to look.
This course is within easy access of Coventry, Rugby, Birmingham, Hinckley, Leicester, Leamington Spa, Banbury and Stratford-upon-Avon.
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.

Autumn courses go over land where horses are stabled and grazed.
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
