Learn to identify examples of edible plants & trees bearing fruit, and understand the physical features you can use to correctly identify useful plants even when they’re dormant.
There will be an opportunity to discuss the types of locations where participants can hunt for wild edibles in the future, and pick up tips on how to safely prepare and enjoy eating many of the foods that are found.
The session fee includes a full-colour learning pack, a tasty foraged-food picnic, and a follow-up list of resources to help with further learning.
The Urban Nanna’s aim is to educate, empower and inspire participants to connect more meaningfully with Country and with their food in a way that encourages them to take an active role in caring for their local environment.
