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.

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

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.
