Wild Detectives: Minibeast Safari

Join us again out in the woods during a day of nature education for children as they become Wild Detectives for a day at our Forest School. In our third and final video we follow the children on a minibeast safari as they look for insects and other creatures to investigate and learn all about them.
This activity makes a great session for Key Stage 1 & 2 school children and we often work with school groups delivering outdoor education on a range of topics. If you'd like to get in touch with us to find out how we can rewild your school curriculum then please get in touch.

Our two native oak tree species can look pretty similar at first glance. Here, I how you my easy and memorable method to distinguish between the Pedunculate Oak and the Sessile Oak. This works great with kids but adults can use it too. Believe it or not, this method involves pixies 🙂

Food Festival Workshop: Wild Cooking & Foraging

We hosted an interactive workshop and demonstration of wild food, foraging and outdoor cooking at Newtown Food Festival. The workshop was open to all ages to have a go for themselves. We cooked; hazel choc cakes, popcorn, toffee apple slices, wild teas, damper bread, smoked fish, hedgerow crumble and baked a loaf of bread in a dutch oven. Everyone had a great time. Also, Lea ran several demonstrations of how to make natural remedies from wild plants found around the site, using weeds for medicine.
We loved doing this workshop and we're available for other Food Festivals or events that would like to book our workshop and demo. Please get in touch.
