Urban Foraging Workshop

Saturday, June 23, 2018, 09:00am - 12:00pm
Contact  360-882-0936

Did you know edible plants are growing all around you? Some are the common ornamental plants we grow in our gardens and some are the weeds we cannot get rid of fast enough. Eve Hanlin began learning about these incredible plants while working as a gardener. She discovered an abundance of surprisingly delicious free foods. The goal of this workshop is to teach how to safely identify and prepare these urban edible plants, and ultimately improve access to nutritious foods. This workshop includes an introduction to the practice of urban foraging, safety considerations, and an overview of how to prepare some common urban edibles. We will also go on a guided walk in search of these edible plants. 

Cost: $10 per person
