Mortimer Forest has a lovely mixture of well established woodland including some mature and even ancient Oak trees, Birch and Beech Copses plus plenty of Larch and Pine trees. This wide variety of trees gives us a very diverse selection of mushrooms to talk about throughout Autumn.
Situated on the outskirts of Ludlow, food capital of Britain, there’s no better place to learn about the finest, culinary, wild food.
These Autumn Fungi Foraging courses will be roughly a 2.5 hour walk around Mortimer Forest where we hope to be able to identify a selection of edible and poisonous wild mushrooms and plants. We’ll stop for some homemade wild food refreshments along the way such as soup.
After the walk around the area we will go back to the Black Pool car park and picnic area to discuss and taste our finds.
This is an identification course, where we will pick sparingly for identification purposes, and for the meal at the end of the course. As a group we will not be picking anything to take home as we do not want to lead a large group of people clearing the forest of mushrooms.
There are limited spaces available so please book your place on our website.
