Summer Foraging Courses: Worcestershire, Ashton Under Hill
Ashton under Hill is a lovely little village in the Wychavon district of Worcestershire, making it within easy reach of Evesham, Worcester, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bromsgrove and even Redditch.
We will meet at the Star Inn, a friendly country pub in idyllic surroundings. The course starts there with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers. 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 edible and poisonous plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
After the walk we will head back to the Star for a tasty wild food lunch based on what we have found. This will include some treats made from our recent finds and a wild salad that we will pick on the day.
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.
We will be meeting outside the Star Inn.
We recommend you bring:
Comfortable, weather appropriate clothing and footwear
(Drinks at the pub are not included.)
Under 12 year olds can come for free, within reason; but please let us know how many will be coming in advance.
The finish time is approximate, depending on certain factors the course could run over by half an hour.
Prices: Adults £45, under 16’s £22.50, under 12’s Free
