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 every month during our online workshops.
Autumn is in full swing and there is a wealth of wild plants and herbs which we can forage to keep us healthy, and it’s all free! We’re shifting the focus away from food this month and over to hedgerow medicine.
You’ll be learning how to boost your immune system using wild plants, how to treat common ailments and how you can use wild plants to administer basic first aid. You’ll get tips for using wild plants as a food source to keep you healthy throughout the year.
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.
You will also get hedgerow medicine tips from Special Guest Speakers from the world of wild food, herbalism, bushcraft and outdoor cooking.
A ticket costs just £11. 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 Plant Identification
* Foraging Tips
* Wild Medicine
* Preserving Ideas
* Make A Spring Tonic
* Special Guest Speakers: Julie Bruton-Seal and Lucinda Warner
* Q&A Session
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.
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 an idea send us an email at [email protected] We might even ask you to showcase your wild medicine for the rest of the class as a guest speaker.
The workshop will last 1 and a half hours and will be hosted via Zoom. Following the session there will be a time set aside for open Q&As with our Guest Speakers. Once you book into the workshop then you will receive an email from Zoom with details of how to access the webinar.
HOW TO BOOK – VERY IMPORTANT!
The cost is £11, 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.
