This course is an opportunity to deepen in to this beautiful and practical skill whilst opening up ways to engage with others around creative and challenging themes.
Wild food foraging offers us an immediate re-connection with the ecosystems we’re part of and how we too are part of nature. It’s fun, fascinating and full of opportunities to learn about more than just plant identification. Teaching and harvesting wild food can support a deeper inquiry in to our indigeneity and in to somatic awareness. It also has great potential as a catalyst to stimulate conversations about challenging topics from race and class, to climate change and mental health.
A relationship with the food that grows all around us is such a fundamentally natural activity for us human animals – how can we work with it to support interest and understanding about the wider world?
This course is an opportunity to deepen in to this beautiful and practical skill whilst opening up ways to engage with others around creative and challenging themes. We will spend time with the plants in group, solo and pair activities, with simple techniques to integrate wild food foraging into your events, and / or to take what you already do with wild food further!
You will gain information, inspiration, deepened awareness, ideas and a few recipes too.
Activities will include:
