wild food and foraging workshop in winter

Kickstart a New Year of foraging & begin walking the wild food trail.

Is 2021 going to be your year of wild food? Would you like to learn how to forage for edible plants this year? 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.

It’s a brand new year and even though the frost is on the ground, there are wild food to be found, if you know where and how to look. We will also be looking ahead to the Spring when wild foods are in abundance, making our plans to get the most out of the year to come. This month’s Special Guest is Glennie Kindred.

Our online foraging workshops have been a smash hit during lockdown, 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.

 

YOUR WORKSHOP INCLUDES:

* Seasonal Foraging Tips

* Winter Wild Roots & Fungi

* Crafting Your Wild Food Diary

* Making Your Wild Food Map

* Discover Apple Wassailing & Old Twelthy Night

* Special Guest Speaker: Glennie Kindred, writer, forager and artist

* 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 hey@woodlandclassroom.com 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.

 

HOW TO BOOK – VERY IMPORTANT!

The cost is £7, this is not per person though, only per slot. 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 to register for the Zoom meeting, following which you will receive the Zoom meeting link and entry password. So, look out for that.

Please note, tickets are non-refundable.

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.
