Dudmaston Estate covers 3000 acres near the village of Quatt, on the outskirts of Bridgnorth. This beautiful Shropshire estate’s mixture of streams, pools, parkland and woodland allows for a diverse range of plants and mushrooms to grow throughout the year.
The course will begin with a short introduction on what to look for, our foraging code and a brief of the Countryside Act.
We will then set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the forest, teaching you how to identify the different edible and poisonous plants and mushrooms we find.
We'll stop along the way for some seasonal homemade refreshments, such as our lovely hogweed and wild garlic soup or fruit leathers.
The day will finish with a lovely wild food lunch based on what we have found and a few pre-prepared 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.
