The Ledbury Autumn Foraging Course is a simple foraging walk where you can identify a number of edible and poisonous wild mushrooms, fruits and plants.
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.
Meet in the parking area along the road opposite to the main entrance to the Castle grounds at 12pm. 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.
Following this there be a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the area identifying the different edible and poisonous plants, fruits and mushrooms.
Finally there will be discussion and tasting the finds over a light lunch.
Ideal for both the total novice and the intermediate forager looking to improve their knowledge, it is also an ideal family outing!
