Organised by Wild Food UK, Spring Foraging Courses will be held at Eastnor Castle Deer Park 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 for a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the deer park and the castle grounds, teaching you how to identify the different Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
After the walk we will end the day 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.
After the course we will email you a list of everything we talk about on the day; to help you remember what you have learnt.
