Event description

Description

Three generations ago people from all over the world knew how to positively identify edible and medicinal plants in their surroundings. The wide spread knowledge of how to cure and feed yourself from the environment has been slowly replaced by industrial agriculture and supermarket alienation. Join renowned wild edibles expert Diego Bonetto on an hour tour that would start the process of getting the knowledge back. Learn about the most common species growing in your garden, along the green belts and in parks and reserves. Find out how they have been used for food, craft and natural remedies. Discover ways to safely harvest from the urban 'wild' and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals.

To some plantain, dandelion, chickweed and sow-thistle are a nuisance, to others they are a delicious salad and a seasonal treat. Participants will be issued with a complementary booklet detailing the most common species.

This is an informative workshop designed to empower people with identification skills. Participants will receive material on the day and follow up links so to progress with their own research. The knowledge is widespread and old and this learning experience will empower participants by giving the possibility to meet, touch and smell the plants.

Dress for the weather and bring camera and notebook if you wish to retain the information.

Cancellation policy: This is an all weather event.
