best of winter foraging & wild food workshop

Kickstart your foraging journey & walk the wild food trail.

Join our monthly workshops online, with James & Lea from Woodland Classroom.

Enjoy finding, harvesting and cooking with wild food with the very best of the winter season during our online workshop. You might think that there’s no wild food to be found during the dark and cold month of winter, but you’d be wrong. Wild greens, fresh fungi and sugary syrup can all be foraged. 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 December, January and February. You will also get foraging tips from Special Guest Speakers from the world of wild food, bushcraft and outdoor cooking.

We will also unlock the secrets behind one of winter’s hidden secrets; Birch Sap Syrup. Learn how to tap a tree and make your own sticky, sweet syrup.

A ticket costs just £11 per household. 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.

YOUR WORKSHOP INCLUDES:

* Seasonal Wild Food Plant Identification

* Foraging Do’s & Don’ts

* How to Tap Birch Trees for Syrup

* Winter Recipe Ideas

* Wild Winter Greens

* Special Guest Speaker: Gemma Hindi, founder of Earthwild and professional forager.

* Q&A Session

YOU could be part of the workshop too. We’re inviting all our online students to chime in with their foraging experiences, successes and failures. If you would like to share your wild food story or recipe with the class then we would love to hear from you. Send us an email at hey@woodlandclassroom.com in advance of the session and we’ll start talking.

The workshop will last 1hr 30 mins and will be hosted via Zoom. Once you book into the workshop then you will receive an email from Zoom with details of how to access the webinar.

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.
