O’ahu Foraging Adventure  Saturday January 28, 2017
Near the Hawaii Nature Center 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Foraging in H onolulu is one of our favorite things to do. Dr. Nat Bletter of Mad re 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. salad.jpg
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 screen and/or rain pr ote ction 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.
