Worcestershire Foraging Course

About this course 

The beautiful village of Abberley offers the perfect venue for a Wild Food Foraging Course Walk. This picturesque area is surrounded with an abundance of wild greens and mushrooms to discover.


It is easy to reach from Birmingham, Kidderminster, Droitwich, Bromsgrove, Evesham, 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 (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

"I attended a course today with Kevan [he was] extremely knowledgeable and patient, and explained everything very eloquently and in detail yet kept it simple. 

I had been promising to do this for years and I’m so glad I did it with The Foraging Course Company. I was amazed at the amount of edible plants and berries that I’ve been walking past for years and how they can enhance our food and general well-being. The samples of jam and particularly the spicy [hawthorn] ketchup were a revelation. 

A lovely day and a really helpful and explanatory follow-up e-mail when I got home reminding us of what we learnt"
