Participants will learn to identify, use, and protect the many edible and medicinal plants – many of them considered to be ‘weeds’ — in the Amsterdam area. They’ll be part of a growing movement to respect food sources, and to expand them responsibly: nut trees, hedgerows, and grapevines, for example.
Wild in the City will be offered as full-day classes, on 4 Sundays, for a total of 24 hours: March 17, April 7 and 28, and June 23, 2013.
Groen en Doen, a project of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation, has Wild in the City possible and have essentially funded 12 participants for the Program! All funded spaces are, but if you like what we are doing, and want to join us, please contact me. There are a few, non-funded spaces available at a fee of 125 euros per each 6-hour Sunday.
