Ever hear the phrase “the world is my oyster?” There are some individuals, who you may know, that can go outside and will never be hungry. The world is just an open cupboard (or fridge) to them!

Hawai‘i’s year-round growing season offers a wide array of wild food options for intrepid localvores. From seeds to leaves, stems to fruits: you can learn what is edible and what is not in the Edible Wild Plants workshop. In this workshop, participants will interact first-hand with many of these underappreciated edibles. This is discovery only – no picking!

In this popular workshop, learn about wild edibles like plantain/laukahi, sow thistle, cat’s ear, and dandelion, among many others.

This is hands-on immersion for foragers & foodies!
