best of spring foraging online workshop

Kickstart your foraging journey & walk the wild food trail.

Join our monthly workshops online, with James & Lea from Woodland Classroom and special guest John Wright, legendary forager and author of the River Cottage Handbooks.

Enjoy finding, harvesting and cooking with wild food with the very best of the spring season during our online workshop. All around us wild plants are bursting with life for spring and with that comes the beginning of one of the best times of the year for foraging. Learn what to look for, where to look and what to do with it in the kitchen.

Our online foraging workshops started in the first lockdown and have continued to be a hit ever since, as people want to learn how to make tasty meals from the wild plants around them. Each month we host online workshops with a whole host of nature-based subjects including foraging, tree lore, woodcraft skills and wild medicine.

In this workshop you will learn about common edible plants you can find in March. April and May. You will also get foraging tips from our special guest speaker John Wright.

It’s not just about wild garlic, though there will be plenty of ideas for that, there is a whole host of tasty and healthy leaves, shoots and seeds to enjoy. You will also learn how to hunt for a hidden gem of spring; the pignut.

A ticket costs just £11 per household. These events are selling out quickly, so grab your place whilst you can 🙂 Everyone has loved these workshops so far and they’ve been really popular.

We are very happy this month to be welcoming to our workshop probably the most well-known name in foraging; John Wright.

John is the author of no less than four River Cottage Handbooks on Hedgerow, Mushrooms, Seashore and Booze. He is also the author of The Forager’s Calendar, which has been a bible to ourselves in learning about wild food.

Not only does John write for the Guardian, he also has strong connections with River Cottage and has made countless TV and radio appearances.

John hosts his own courses in Dorset through Edible Bush. “I am one of those very lucky people who have managed to turn a hobby (chiefly fungus hunting) into a job. Now I spend my time foraging, and encouraging others to forage through my writing, forays and talks. If you think this sounds at all fun then you are quite right.”

We are proud to be welcoming John to our workshop and can’t wait for him to share his expertise with you.

john wright - foraging and wild food course

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.
