Tenbury Wells Foraging Courses
Built in 1728, Burford House and its beautiful gardens contain a spot where the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire meet. The countryside around these three counties is rich in wild edible plants and fungi.
We will meet outside the cafe at Burford House. The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for, our foraging code and a brief of the Countryside Act.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the gardens and along the River Teme, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous plants, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
We'll stop along the way for some seasonal homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
We will end the day with a wild food lunch based on what we have found and some homemade treats.
After the course, we will email you a list of everything we talked about on the day to help you to remember what you have learnt.
Please see website for additional course dates.
