Also take a look at the Calendar for a list of all Offerings for 2013

Weed Walks – Dates available throughout the year

Foraging 101

Bring buttered bread – we’ll make and share wild sandwiches. Bring a flask of hot water and we’ll make wild teas. Wild, available, healthy, free, and delicious food surrounds us: learn how to forage safely and help yourself. Kids are welcome – bring your whole family! Just let me know the ages of the kids… the little ones get tired quickly and will need help from mom or pop. 5 euros for children, 8 euros for adults.

In case of rain, we will reschedule.

If you’d like to join, but can’t make it for Sunday, April 14, how about leaving a message below so I know if I should plan another Foraging 101? Thanks!

Embrace Your Weeds

Many of those “weeds” that spring up in your garden may have unique culinary and medicinal properties, and may play other useful roles in your specific ecosystem. Together with Jennie from Wild Weed Wisdom and Lynn from Urban Herbology we will visit Amsterdam gardens and get to know some of the most common and lovable weeds in person!
Sunday 21 April, 14:00-16:00

Grow Your Own Tea Garden
Together with Jennie from Wild Weed Wisdom, we will discuss the different growing preferences and health attributes of various wild and domesticated plants that can be used to make nourishing teas. You will learn how to root cuttings, and how to harvest, dry and and store tea leaves. You will take home some familiar and some lesser-know plants to get your tea garden started.
Sunday 12 May, 12:00-14:00

Grow a Fertility Garden
Together with Jennie from Wild Weed Wisdom, we’ll explore the use of traditional kitchen herbs and and common garden weeds to create healthful tinctures and teas to support fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and recovery.
Sunday 12 May, 15:00-17:00

Cooking Wild

Date to be announced for Autumn 2013

1:30 PM To 7:00 PM

Amsterdamse Bos/VU Hortus Botanicus
Take the afternoon off to forage for wild food – We’ll transform it into a 3-course feast, with wild herbal cocktails, salads, soup, main course and finish with our wild homemade teas and sweets. We need about 3-4 hours to search for and harvest our food, along with time in the kitchen to make homemade pasta, quiches – a complete menu. Then, aprons off and cocktails in hand, lets enjoy ourselves and savour the fruits of our harvest with dinner together.
