Fall Foraging in Urban Honolulu 

Fall Foraging in Urban Honolulu 
$15 (Member) – $20 (Non-Member)

Nature provides seasonal treats to enjoy. Join Slow Food O’ahu once again for a fall foraging adventure led by Dr. Nat Bletter, Flavormeister of Madre Chocolate. Nat earned his doctorate in ethnobotany from City University of New York and is a past Slow Food O’ahu delegate to Terra  Madre. You’ll be in great hands as you learn about, and get to taste the incredible plant life – seeds, flowers, fruit, vines, etc., all growing wild in Makiki, and likely also growing in your backyard! As we learned from Sunny Savage, author of Wild Food Plants of Hawaii, expanding your diet by including wild plants helps add to your gut’s biodiversity, and biodiversity is at the heart of what Slow Food is about.

At the end of the tour, Nat will toss foraging finds into a very wild plant salad to be enjoyed by all. Bring a fork and plate, and bags for gathering.
Be sure to wear sun, and/or rain protection and bring water.
See you in Makiki! Go just beyond the Hawaii Nature Center (2131 Makiki Hts. Rd.). We’ll meet at the lower gate.
