Details

We’re excited to be running courses on the outskirts of Ledbury, by kind permission of Eastnor Castle. This beautiful, well situated venue is within easy reach of Malvern, Bromyard, Hereford, Worcester, Ross-on-wye, Cheltenham and Gloucester.

We’ll be meeting in the parking area along the road opposite to the main entrance to the Castle grounds at 12pm for a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.

After the talk we’ll set off for a 2-3 hour walk identifying the different edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find. There will be breaks along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup.

We will finish the day off with a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad that we will pick on the day and possibly even some wild garlic pesto or creamy mushrooms.

After the walk we will email you details of all the plants and mushrooms we find to help you remember what you have learnt.
