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.

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

​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.

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
