Situated on the outskirts of Ludlow, there’s no better place to learn about the finest, culinary, wild food. These courses are within easy reach of Tenbury Wells, Bishop’s Castle, Church Stretton, Bridgnorth, Craven Arms, Cleobury Mortimer and Knighton.
The course starts with a short introduction on what to look for and a brief of the general countryside codes, where they relate to foragers.
Then we’ll set off on a roughly 2.5 hour walk around the forest, teaching you how to identify the different plants, flowers, fruits and mushrooms that we find.
There will be a break along the way for some homemade refreshments such as our lovely wild food soup or elderflower champagne.
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 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. There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
Why are insect populations collapsing around the world? Why are there fewer birds and frogs? What is happening to Nature in Shropshire and the Welsh Borders? To round off Oswestry’s first Festival of Nature, Damian Carrington, the Guardian’s environment editor will moderate a major debate at the Willow Gallery about the steep decline of the natural world and what we as individuals can do. Entry will be free, but you will need a ticket.
Our Ranger Team will meet you in the car park at 21:00 (20:30 in August) and show you the best spot to watch the bats emerging for the night.
Then using bat detectors they’ll lead a walk through the gardens, picking up all of the best spots and passing on their expert local knowledge. Expected finish time 22:30 (22:00 in August).
