Event 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 in the UK. 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 

Show more


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 treat/s to sample
