Where: Near the Hawaii Nature Center, Lower Tantalus 
Cost: $10 for members, $15 for non-members

The winter rains in Hawai`i will make this sring foraging in Honolulu very fun and exciting! Dr. Nat Bletter, of Madre Chocolate, leads us on a spring adventure in Makiki. You will 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 tsalad.jpghe 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.
