Are you interested in learning how to feed yourself and your family with food that is exceptionally nutrient-rich, delicious, and FREE? In these uncertain times, living as a society that relies on a completely artificial system (even for our most basic needs) with foundations that are shakier than ever before... connecting with the real, natural world we live in is deeply empowering and comforting.
Experience the peaceful, joyful meditation of acquiring your food while walking on the earth, the wind delighting your skin and the sun warming your body, fresh air filling your lungs, harvesting living plants that are so much fresher than anything from the grocery store. Truly know where your food comes from!
Our springtime wild food walk will focus on nature's seasonal special: delicious, fresh, wild spring GREENS! As we take a plant walk all over the land to gather the seasonal abundance, you will learn about a variety of nutrient-rich wild greens. We will bring them back and share a big wild green salad.
Our host for this walk is Eden Organic Farm in Balch Springs (close to Dallas), an amazing local organic farm. If you're interested in checking out Eden's fresh produce and other goodies, show up early (before noon) to browse their Market!
Everyone who attends will receive recipes and ideas for feeding yourself and your family from the land.Class investment is $30 per person. We are also open to partial or full barters (contact us for details). Children are welcome to attend (8 and under at no cost); please ask about family pricing.
What to bring:
Wear comfortable walking shoes or boots (the farm may be muddy if it rains). Bring a canvas bag to collect edibles as we walk, your own bowl and utensils to enjoy a wild green salad we will create from our bounty, and a camera if you'd like to photo the edibles we discover!
We look forward to enjoying fresh, wild spring greens with you!
