Vitality and nourishment can be found all around us. During our Wild Foraging Workshop, you will discover all the edible, local plants that grow wildly in abundance and their nutritional properties. Depending on the season, we may harvest stinging nettle, ground elder, comfrey, mushrooms, edible flowers and much more.
Through the simple exploration of the world around us, we connect more deeply to ourselves and Mother Earth. From the wild garden and straight to your mouth, you'll delight in finding your own ingredients just outside the front door.
Learn how eating healthy can be fun, easy and nourishing in so many ways. All your senses, and your stomach, will rejoice as they dive into a more colorful and flavorful selection. Using those freshly foraged items from the wild, we'll cook up delicious meals and treats.
All meals are free from gluten, dairy, refined sugar and are as locally and organically sourced as possible.
