EatWild Spring Foraging Series (Online)
Springtime is the perfect season to get outside and learn about what’s growing all around you. There’s a good chance that wild edibles are springing forth in your backyard, community garden or favourite nature spot if you know where to look and what to look for. If you’re interested in learning how to safely and respectfully harvest wild food this season, join EatWild mentors Jody and Dylan in a two-part online spring foraging series designed to give you the confidence to identify, create relationships, respectfully wildcraft, process, prepare, cook and enjoy your harvest.
Each workshop takes place over a weekend starting on Thursday evening with a one-hour-long introduction to the seasonal wild plants we’ll be covering. In this session, we’ll learn how to identify plants and plant characteristics, discuss land access, poisonous look-alikes, foraging tools and safety. Empowered with this information, participants can set off to forage for ingredients in the wild or at your local farmers’ market. Participants will gather again on Monday evening to process, prepare and cook their harvest. This is an interactive cooking class where we will prepare a delicious meal made from our wild ingredients as well as a wild cocktail. Questions, cooking techniques, food and foraging stories will be shared during this fun and casual evening where you just may find your next foraging partner within our EatWild community. Recipes and ingredient lists will be provided in advance of the class.
No, the wild spring edibles we are focussing on grow commonly in North America, that said the timing of your bioregion may vary from ours on the West Coast of BC. These workshops are focussing on early spring edibles therefore are not applicable to the southern hemisphere at this time.
This series takes place over Zoom online, there is no physical gathering involved.
That’s OK! The wild edibles we are focussing on can be found at your local farmers market if they are in season in your region. We will also supply a list of substitutes that can be found in regular supermarkets so you can cook alongside the rest of the group.
We will send out a replay of each class to registered workshop participants after the live session has ended.
