Foraging Tour- September 17, 2017
Sunday, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM HST
Near the Hawaii Nature Center
Lower Tantalus, Makiki
Foraging in Honolulu is one of our favorite things to do. Dr. Nat Bletter of Madre Chocolate, one of our Terra Madre delegates this year, leads us on another adventure in Makiki! You will learn about the incredible and edible plant life in Makiki, and chomp on a variety of plants, and flowers, fruit and seeds. 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 plastic 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. We hope you can make it!
