Warwickshire Foraging Course

About this course 

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.

This course can include private farmland where horses and sheep are grazed.

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

  • information on where to find these species again

  • recipe ideas

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

  • digital information sheet after the course

We had such an amazing time! We can't wait to book on another course with you"

Parasol on Warwicshire Foragng Course

This is an educational course, there is no harvesting during the course. Samples are picked for identification purposes only.


We cannot guarantee what species will be growing on any given course date - this is the nature of foraging. As a rough guide, springtime and summer courses should be predominantly plant focused, with mushrooms sometimes found. Summer courses may also have fruits and flowers to learn about, with some mushrooms. Autumn courses should be more mushroom-focused than spring or summer courses but this is dependant on weather conditions preceding the course.
