Home > Events > Ashton-under-Hill, Worcestershire Spring Foraging Courses
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 Spring shoots, plants, flowers and hopefully mushrooms that we find.
We will stop along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup.
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, 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.
