Edible Wild Plants: A Hands-On Foray for Foragers and Foodies
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!
Join instructor Zach Mermel of Ola Design Group for the Edible Wild Plants workshop on Saturday, October 17, 2020, from 9am – 3pm at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village. The cost is $50 or $40 for VAC Members. Attendees will meet at VAC’s Niaulani Campus and caravan in their respective cars to the various sites on tour. Due to social distancing measures, class size will be limited. Students must wear a CDC recommended face covering during class and are required to use the provided cleaning supplies after class.
Remember: Never eat anything from the wild without first consulting an expert! Please forage responsibly. Educate yourself, and have fun.
