Hello, thank you once again for taking the time to read my blog!
At a time when we can all look to the future with cautious optimism, things are really starting to happen once for Wild Classroom. I am now pleased to be able to operate the education side of my business once again, with several schools contacting me almost as soon as the reopening plans were confirmed. This is something I have missed dearly over the past couple of months, and cannot wait to get back out there cooking once again. One particular workshop of note which I am particularly looking forward to is recreating the culinary delights enjoyed by the polar explorers of the early 20th Century, recipes will follow...
The proposed government timelines around group sizes means that my family workshops are unlikely to run until at least May, I am currently in the process of planning some of these at a number of locations across Kent, in addition to my half-term family course at Belmont, and I will update here in due course.
Alongside planning future workshops and trying new recipes and techniques over fire, I have been quite busy behind the scenes working on a number of exciting collaborations, including some potential larger events and festivals for the summer months, along with larger scale educational workshops to hopefully make up for the lack of residential trips that so many pupils have missed out on over the past year.
I was also fortunate enough to be successful in my bid for a fantastic EU-funded support package from Visit Kent, aimed at promoting outdoor and off-season visitor experiences here in the Garden of England, a place where I am very proud to live! This hopefully will bring lots of exciting collaborations and sustainable experiences for our county for the next few years and beyond.
On a concluding note, should you or anyone you know be interested in my school experiences, please do not hesitate to contact me for further details, while my Covid Risk-Assessment is available to download on my schools page.
Thank you, and take care
