This is the first workshop in Susan Hutchinson’s two-part workshop series about foraging and cooking wild food. If you’d like to learn about cooking wild food using ingredients foraged on this walk, please also book into Susan’s Preserving Wild Food workshop on Saturday 11 February, 12pm – 3pm.
Susan Hutchinson is an avid forager and is keen to teach us how she does it.
In this walk Susan will show us how to identify and collect wild fennel, rosehip, hawthorn, wild brassicas, purslane, and baby apples. This workshop offers a great opportunity to introduce more diversity and native species into your diet.
Susan will also teach us how to use the various plants in both recipes and teas. Handouts with recipes provided.
Subject to what’s in season, this workshop will be held near Jerrabomberra wetlands. We will meet at the corner of Blueberry and Eyre St, Kingston. If there are any changes to the workshop location, we will let you know via email. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a hat, sunscreen, water and something to eat as there are limited facilities nearby.
