Our Tutors

Learn With Us

Engage your children with nature, getting hands-on with edible wild foods and natural crafts, foraging and cooking in our Wild School sessions led by expert forager, Vix Hill-Ryder, Forest School teacher, Helen Parker, and experienced children’s workshop leader, Petra Polak.

Each of these wild women have years of teaching experience and a firm connection with nature.

Our Classes

Foraging has the potential to bond families & strengthen communities.

Our classes are primarily held at our outdoor education center (though occasionally we will arrange classes elsewhere, such as the beach for seaweed harvesting!) This is land that The Family Foraging Kitchen team have been maintaining and rewilding over the last number of years.

We have a classroom, outdoor activity covered area, compost toilet with disabled access, an apiary, a reservoir, wild flower meadows, an orchard, a woodland and a new outdoor cookery area. This also gives us a range of botanical diversity, space – and the ability to still go ahead even in inclement weather.

Our Location

Located on the beautiful Rame Peninsula.

Our education centre is located on Horsepool Lane, which is just by Sheviock, in southeast Cornwall, and is part of the Antony Estate. It is only a short ten minute drive outside of Millbrook and is also accessible on local bus routes. Detailed logistics on how to find and parking us will be shared with each booking.
