About this event

This is mostly a plant identification walk, not the usual class with a short walk and a lot of wild food samplings at the end. The idea is to learn about local edible and medicinal plants with a focus on identification. We had some rain recently so we should see a bunch of interesting plants.

We'll also discuss environmental issues with invasive plants and how (wild) food can be part of the solution.

It's a very slow walk for around 2 hours with lots of stops to talk about the plants, fruits, berries and mushrooms we'll encounter. You'll need to bring water and sun protection.

After the class we'll just have one drink and a wild food snack featuring plant(s) that we encountered during the walk.
