Event description

Description

Want to fill your plate with food that is sustainably, ethically and locally grown or foraged? Think you can't do it because you live in a city? Well we've got two of Sydney's best known foragers and educators to help you work it all out!

Meet Oliver Brown, from Fat of the Land and Sea. Oliver recently finished spending a year living on wild and homegrown food, while living in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. Oliver's diet was grown, foraged, fished, hunted and bartered - all while he worked his day job in the city.

Then there is Diego Bonetto, also known as 'the weedy one'. Diego is a wild food advocate based in Sydney, most famous for his offering of urban foraging workshops. Building on the knowledge acquired while growing up on a farm in Italy, Diego introduce people to the ever-present food and medicine plants that surround us.

We are delighted to announce that Oliver and Diego are combining forces for a hoe down on seasonal wild food. We'll welcome there here to equip you with the knowledge of the edible delights you can find naturally, in the world that surrounds us.

Oliver and Diego will cover wild food ranging from apples to acorns and fungi to urchins. Autumn + winter provides us with some of the tastiest wild foods, and through their extensive experience, they hold the knowledge and skills in the foraging, the prepping and of course, the eating. You'll be able to taste what is made on the day along with the other foraged goods during this extremely useful masterclass.

Suitable for: All ages

Bring: Pen + paper for note taking

Provided: Tastings of foraged food

Cost: $85.00

The teachers:

Oliver Brown is a forager and the founder of Fat of the Land and Sea. He is an archaeologist with an obsession about where food comes from and how it gets to the table. This has made him enough of a forager, fisher, hunter, gardener, beekeeper and cook to take on the challenge of going for a year living on wild and homegrown food with just a handful of other ingredients allowed into the kitchen. All while keeping up the office day job and family life in suburban Sydney.

Diego Bonetto collaborates extensively with chefs, herbalists, environmentalists and cultural workers promoting new understanding of what the environment has to offer.
He works to enable convivial conversations around belonging, sustainability and agency. In other words he offers an alternative for people to re-engage with their neighbourhoods, streets and footpaths through edible adventures.
