Wild Food Walk - Cactus Walk/Lerps Sugar and Tailgate Tasting

Join us as we take a leisurely plant identification walk.

Despite the weather we still have tons of wild edibles available. We'll look at various edible cactus, aromatic plants. We'll see some watercress, cattail, willow herbs, sow thistle and much more.

If you have not been to a recent walk, I will also show you an interesting ingredient:  Lerp Sugar. These little insects produce an edible sugar that's quite delicious.

After the walk, we'll sit down and look at various ways to clean and eat cactus.

We'll have some cactus pear soda and Mia may have some interesting recipes and treat featuring cactus and yes, lerps sugar for us to try!

As always, bring plenty of water, sensible shoes and sun protection and maybe a foraging knife and bag to collect some samples. We look forward to seeing you!

Because of the food/snacks you need to confirm for this meetup so we know how many people are coming. If you can not use paypal send me an email ([masked]).
