Wild Foods Foraging Tour
Naturalist Diego Bonetto will introduce us to the wonders of edible weeds on a two-hour urban tour on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.
Building on the knowledge acquired while growing up on a farm in Italy, Diego introduces people to the ever-present food and medicine plants that surround us. To some plantain, dandelion, chickweed, and sow-thistle are a nuisance, to others, they are a seasonal treat. Learn about the most common species growing in your garden, along with the green belts, and in parks and reserves. Find out how they have been used for food, craft, and natural remedies. Discover ways to safely harvest from the urban ‘wild’, and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals.
The event will take place at Waratah Park, 13 Namba Road, Duffy’s Forest on Sunday 26th February. You will gather at 2pm for a 2:30pm start.
This event has a cost of $35 for members ($40 for non-members).
