On this weekend we will study 10 plants in the forest which have great culinary values.
We will explore the forest on an easy stroll to discover what plants are in season, how to harvest, and prepare. We will also learn about possible risks and what to be aware of. In the shade there will be an informal talk about wild super foods and opportunities when you rewild your diet.
We will prepare a full wildcrafted meal and sample wild drinks around the fire and under the stars.
On Sunday we will explore how the Earth is changing and how wild species are on the move. How do human beings engage with helping nature transition and recover so that species and wild places can survive. In this workshop we will demonstrate 10 things you can do to help you and the planet rewild.
Camping is included for both Friday and Saturday night.
