Worcestershire Foraging Course

About this course 
 

The beautiful Manor Arms pub offers the perfect venue for a Wild Food Foraging Course Walk. Set in the picturesque village of Abberley, it is surrounded by areas with an abundance of wild greens and mushrooms to forage for.

 

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

  • tips on harvesting

  • 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 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.
