The Enchanting World of Wild Edibles: A Sensational Journey into Weed Foraging!

This adventure is guided by Donna, an esteemed member of the Narara Ecovillage. Donna’s profound passion for nurturing nature’s bounty first blossomed during her formative years as a horticulture student, and her fascination only deepened as she delved into the extraordinary medicinal properties of plants during her university studies. Now, she invites you to join her, where she masterfully transforms humble wild plants (often unjustly referred to as “weeds”) into culinary delights, luxurious balms, and potent tinctures.

With her expert guidance, you’ll discover an astonishing array of wild treasures concealed in our very own backyard. Unleash your senses as you learn to identify, harvest, and transform these unsung heroes into gourmet delicacies that will tantalize your taste buds and nourish your body and soul.Donna’s creative flair extends to the realm of fermentation, where she masterfully crafts her own vinegars and beer using a medley of handpicked, foraged, and homegrown ingredients.

The Yearly AGM and volunteering for the next year is on straight after 4pm. This is a wonderful group of people to share the joys of Permaculture in fair share of the load and people care.

What to bring

Walking shoes for foraging in the Village, anything to donate to the raffle that is Permaculture based. Anything for the share table.
