Event description

Description

The historic Capability Brown designed Ampthill Great Park in Bedfordshire offers a range of habitats to learn how to forage for edible mushrooms and plants growing all around us in the UK in autumn. This foraging course is easy to reach from Bedford, Luton, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Cambridge and Dunstable.

At this intriguing venue, where Katherine of Aragon was once held under house arrest, you will discover how to identify some commonly growing foods to forage for, and hints on where to look.

When we meet up, we will go through laws and safety points of foraging before heading out to discover the wild food in the area.

​The course includes:

  • an overview of foraging laws and safety best practice

  • exploration of the venue

  • introduction to a number of edible species

  • instruction on how to tell edible species apart from poisonous lookalikes

  • tips on harvesting

  • information on where to find these species again

  • recipe ideas

  • wild food treats to sample

  • digital information sheet sent after the course

Samples of tasty wild food treats can include soups, pestos, salts, pickles, syrups, cordials, jams, jellies, leathers, vinegars, and preserves. All are either 100% plant/fungi-based or have a 100% plant/fungi-based alternative

Participants must be aged 18 or over - sorry, no babes in arms

Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the course

Exact meet-up location and further information sent two days before the course date
