Warwickshire, Leamington Spa Foraging Courses
AVAILABILITY & BOOKING
ABOUT THE COURSE
These courses will be held around Hunningham, a quaint little village with plenty of fields, meadows, hedgerows and riverside to forage in. On the outskirts of Leamington Spa this beautiful venue is within easy reach from Warwick, Coventry, Rugby, Banbury, Birmingham, Redditch, Northampton and even Leicester.
We will meet at the Red Lion, a welcoming pub alongside the River Leam. The course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for, our foraging code and a brief of the Countryside Act, where it relates to foraging. Drinks are available from the pub.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the village, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some seasonal homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup, elderflower champagne or fruit leathers.
Then it’s back to the Red Lion for a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. All of our food is seasonal so what we make depends on recent weather and what is around at that time of year. In spring we will be making use of the fresh wild greens and in summer the wild flowers and mushrooms.
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.
