Wild Weed Wisdom

Nurture Your 'Inner Wild' with Foraged Edible and Medicinal Plants

Wild Weed Walks: 17 May and 31 May

I can’t wait for the next Wild Weed Walks  –  there is one on 17 May and the other on 31 May. If this interests you, you might also want to know about Foraging 101, a 2-hour journey where we make on-the-spot sandwiches and tea from wild foods – click here for info.

Come out and join me; it’s only 8€, after all! I’m hoping to see some familiar old faces, and meet new ones, and share some of the fascinating herbal information I’ve learned over the years. We are going to find all kinds of edible plants, from burdock to purslane and chicory, and share facts about the medicinal plants growing wild in Amsterdam, like St. John’s wort, and plantain and many others.

We”ll gather at a set location (see below) where you’ll meet up with other wild-weeders and head out to discover the amazing edible plants and medicinal herbs growing in this area.

In case of light rain, we’ll meet as planned, and then be on our way. If there’s a downpour, we’ll postpone the walk, and I’ll contact everyone by email.  Feel free to bring your camera and notebook to record your discoveries!

Cost: €8

Children: Children under 8 are free! Otherwise, €5. (Let me know in advance if you plan to bring kids; one adult for every 2 children)

17 May – Amstel Park, Amsterdam; at the entrance to the Labyrinth.

31 May – Rembrant Park, Amsterdam; at the gate to the Kinderboerderij.

Times: 10:00 – 11:30, sometimes a bit longer…

The Walk is typically 1.5 hours, but participants are invited to stay longer for further exploration, for additional questions-and-answers or simply to continue enjoying the outdoors with like-minded folk.

Please tell your friends and come on out!
