*Online* Virtual Foraging for Survival

About this Workshop

Learn some useful food foraging survival knowledge in case of emergency. You’ll learn how to find food in a pinch and where to safely forage on the coast. Your questions will be answered about how find sustainable edible wild weeds, nutrient rich plants for survival and beach forage superfoods like seaweeds and shellfish. We’ll cover any poisonous plants you should avoid and simple cooking methods for the food you find in this 2 hour video collection.

To be clear, the format of this workshop consists of 2 hrs of Robin’s original video content (that you can watch and re-watch over the next year) and a 1 hr live Zoom session. The live session will begin with Chef Robin bringing wild edibles for show and tell that she’s harvested that week to give you examples of what foragables are popping up in the forests. Additionally, Robin will demo and briefly go over a few more currently available edible species. The final 30 minutes of the session will be an opportunity for questions from participants.
