Events for 25 Mar 2018

Coventry and Warwickshire Spring Foraging Courses
Coventry & Warwickshire Spring Foraging Courses

Date: 25 March 2018

Location: Bubbenhall Wood Bubbenhall, Warwick, CV8 3BH

Time: 12:00 - 15:30

This course is a simple foraging walk where we hope to be able to identify a selection of edible and poisonous plants, fruits and wild mushrooms.

This ancient woodland contrasts beautifully with the new meadow to give us a very diverse selection of plants. We will meet at the car park at 12pm beginning the course with a 20 minute introduction on how to forage safely and sustainably, and a brief of the general countryside codes where they relate to foragers.

We will then set off for an approximate 2.5 hour walk around Bubbenhall Wood, where we will identify a selection of edible and poisonous wild plants and perhaps some mushrooms.

We’ll stop for some refreshments along the way such as our homemade hogweed and wild garlic soup. Afterwards we will head back and cook up a wild food lunch based around our finds, such as a wild salad we’ll pick on the day or a wild garlic pesto.

After the course, we will email you the details of the plants and mushrooms we find to help you to remember what you have learnt. This is an identification course, where we will pick sparingly for identification purposes and for the meal at the end only.

There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
