Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire Spring Foraging Courses

Type:Guided Walk

Burford House Gardens, Burford, Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire, WR15 8HG
Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire Spring Foraging Courses

About

Built in 1728 Burford House and its beautiful gardens have been open to the public since 1958. At one point in the garden is the spot where the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire meet. The countryside around theses three counties is both beautiful and rich in wild edible plants and fungi. On the outskirts of Tenbury Wells, it is within easy reach of Ludlow, Leominster, Bromyard, Kidderminster, Hereford, Worcester, Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury.

We will meet outside the cafe at Burford House. 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. Tea or coffee is available from the cafe.

Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the grounds of Burford House park and along the River Teme, 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.
