Join us for a simple foraging walk, where we will identify a selection of the edible and poisonous wild plants and mushrooms that we come across.
Afterwards, enjoy a light Wild Food foraged lunch to include a little of what we have found and some homemade tasty treats.
Ashton under Hill is a charming little village in South Worcestershire, not far from Evesham and within easy reach of Pershore, Worcester, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Stratford-upon-Avon and even Redditch. We will meet at 12pm at the Star Inn, a friendly country pub in the heart of the village. The course starts there 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. Then we’ll set off for a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the area identifying the different edible and poisonous plants, fruits and mushrooms that we come across. We will stop somewhere along the way for some lovely homemade refreshments such as our wild mushroom soup, fruit leathers or even some Elderflower Champagne. After the walk it’s back to the Star for a light wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some tasty treats made from our recent finds, a wild salad we’ll pick on the day and a wild mushroom dish that we’ll cook in front of you. We will email you details of all the mushrooms we find to help you remember what you have learnt.
There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
