Foraging Food

with Leoniek Bontje

There is a lot more to gain from the city than we realize. Food is not only in the supermarket, but is also growing in our immediate environment. Learn to recognize edible wild plants, get information about nutritional values, and go foraging with Leoniek Bontje. At the end of the session, you will make a dip together from your foraged goods.

What you will do 

After the workshop, you are able to recognize a variety of edible plants with their associated health benefits. You go home with a full stomach, a handout of all the presented plants and recipes, so that you can continue at home right away.
