How would you survive in winter without a grocery store? Chef Robin Kort will teach you how to find wild winter treasures; food like seaweeds, winter mushrooms, edible plants, and roots that you can find in our forests, meadows, and oceans. This workshop will cover everything you need to know to safely gather, prepare and cook unique flavours found only in nature. This is an identification walk only (no picking) and includes a sampling of wild edibles and an open discussion with wildcraft expert Robin Kort.

This beginner level workshop will cover the following topics:

  1. How to safely identify and gather wild winter edibles
  2. How to prepare and cook wild winter edibles
  3. Participants will get practical identification experience and follow along on a guided forest walk with Robin during the workshop
