Learn how to safely identify and cook wild summer edibles. Foraging for wild berries, edible trees, shoots, and leaves in the summer is fun, easy and great for kids, food nerds, and hikers. Everything you need to know to safely gather, prepare and cook the unique flavours found only in nature. Cattails, licorice fern, nettles, berries, wild chamomile or whatever we find on our walk. This is an identification walk only (no picking) and it includes a sampling or wild edibles and discussion with our wildcraft expert.
This beginner level workshop will cover the following topics:
- Safely identify and gather wild summer edibles
- Participants will get practical identification experience and follow a guided forest walk with Robin during the workshop.
