The beautiful Hinchingbrooke Country Park, located in Huntingdon, is the perfect place to learn how to forage for edible plants and fungi growing all around us in the UK. This foraging course is easy to get to from Peterbrough, Northampton, Bedford, and Cambridge.

 

At this species-rich venue, you'll discover how to identify some commonly growing foods to forage for, how to avoid poisonous lookalikes, 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.

"We had a fantastic time on your course. Thank you for such an enjoyable afternoon"

​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 sample/s such as soup, jam, jelly, pesto, vinegar, cordial 

  • digital information sheet sent after the course
     

Any samples given are 100% plant/fungi-based or have a 100% plant/fungi-based alternative.

 

The exact meeting location and park access details will given two days before the course date.

 

Participants must be aged 18 or over - sorry, no children under 18 or babes in arms on this course.

 

Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the course.

We cannot guarantee what species will be growing on any given course date. As a rough guide, Springtime and summer courses should be predominantly plant focused, with mushrooms sometimes found; Summer courses should also have fruits and flowers to learn about, and Autumn courses should be mostly mushroom-focused with a small amount of plants available
