wild food and foraging workshop online april

The abundance of wild food in Spring is here! Get a head start on your foraging season and walk the wild food trail.

Want to find wild food in your local patch? Join our monthly workshops online, with James & Lea from Woodland Classroom. Enjoy finding, harvesting and cooking with wild food every month during our online workshops.

April is one of the BIG months for the forager, with so many wild food to choose from. We can feast on wild green to our heart’s content and use them in so many creative ways in our cooking. Nettles, garlic mustard, beech leaves and more are awaiting the keen-eyed forager. There’s so much good stuff to be found in April and we want to help you make the most of if. We are also excited to be welcoming bushcraft and nature educator Tara Crank as our special guest this month.

Our online foraging workshops have been a smash hit, as people want to learn how to make tasty, healthy food from the wild plants around them.

In this workshop you will also get seasonal foraging tips from Special Guest Speakers from the world of wild food, bushcraft and outdoor cooking.

A ticket costs just £7. These events are selling quickly, so grab your place whilst you can 🙂 Everyone has loved these workshops so far and they’ve been really popular.



* Seasonal Foraging Tips

* Creative Ways to Use Nettles

* Wild Food Recipes

* How to make ‘wild paatra’

* Special Guest Speaker: Tara Crank, bushcraft & nature educator

* Q&A Session

With our workshops you can learn at your own pace. Join just one workshop or join us every month, you decide. There’s no commitment from you to attend every month.

Did you know that YOU can be part of the workshop too. We’re inviting all our online students to chime in with their foraging experiences during lockdown, recipe successes and failures, and any tips you have yourself to share with the class. We would love to hear from you. So, if you have something you want to share, send us an email at We might even ask you to showcase your creation for the rest of the class as a guest speaker.

Your wild food workshop will last 1 hour and will be hosted via Zoom. Following the session there will be extra time for an open Q&A with your hosts and guest speaker. Once you book into the workshop an email will be sent you a few days before the event with details of how to access the webinar on Zoom.



The cost is £7, this is not per person though, only per household. So feel free to cram as many family members around the screen as you can 🙂

Once you have your ticket, we will follow up with an email for you which includes the Zoom meeting link and entry password. This will be a couple of days before the event. So, look out for that.

Please note, tickets are non-refundable.



We will be welcoming Tara Crank, a bushcraft and nature educator based in South-West Wales.

Tara delivers outdoor workshops with both the renowned Dryad Bushcraft school as well as Coed Lleol, both in Wales. Tara will be sharing her recipe for Wild Paatra a traditional dish from her own Gujarati culture. She will also be sharing what she’s been foraging for during the month of April.

Your Tutors: James & Lea Kendall

James is the Head Bushcraft Instructor at Woodland Classroom, having worked in environmental education & conservation for over 10 years. James’ approach to teaching  steers his students toward fostering a deeper connection with nature through understanding the landscape around us; “Bushcraft skills are an effective way to do this as we learn how to make use of natural materials and live lightly with the land, whilst also connecting with our own ancient past by seeing the land through the eyes of our ancestors.”

Lea is a qualified Counsellor and Mindfulness in a Woodland Setting practitioner. She is a firm believer in the power of nature to be therapeutic for everyone. Lea is an active forager, passionate about how we can use common plants for both food and medicine. She enjoys making her own tinctures and medicinal remedies for treating common ailments.
