Edible Weeds Workshop

ABOUT

Re-awaken the hunter gatherer within you and go straight to the source by learning how to identify, harvest and consume some of the many edible weeds growing in your own backyard.

One thing we all have in common as humans is the need to eat. Up until yesterday we were very connected to where our food came from and understood how to acquire it.

Food that you have hunted, gathered or grown yourself is always more meaningful and more enjoyable than food which has been delivered to your door in a box.

After attending this workshop you will be capable of gathering enough edible weeds for you and your family that you will never need to shop for greens again.

DETAILS
Arrive at Wild Movement Perth and make yourself comfortable among the trees. Receive your very own infograph of 25 edible weeds that grow in your local bioregion.

Learn the basics behind foraging for edible weeds before heading out into the field to begin learning how to identify and consume them.

To finish up we will get to sit down and enjoy a community meal that has been harvested and prepared by everyone on the day.

COSTS

Adults $30

Kids $10

Family $50

Learning and practicing primitive skills is a great excuse to get outside, away from technology and connect with nature.

A great exercise to do with your children, once they dial in the technique they will be occupied for hours and begging you to go for a nature walk to find materials.

What is cordage? Cordage is simply string or rope.

Why would I want to learn how to make it?

After a sharp cutting edge cordage is one of the most useful items that you can have when out exploring the wilderness. Cordage can be used as a fishing line, to start a fire (bow drill), to build a shelter, used as a bow string, to create a net, the list goes on.

Pine Pollen Harvesting Workshop (Spring Time)

Learn how to gather and prepare your own Pine Pollen Tincture.

Humans have been using the pine trees and their Pollen as medicine for over 2000 years in recorded history (Chinese medicine).

It is likely that our relationship with pine pollen dates back hundreds of thousands if not millions of years.

In the Spring time in Pine Trees release pollen is a natural part of the life and growth cycle of the ecosystems in which they reside, feeding the soil, plants and animals who eat pollen dusted food sources.

The phytosterols in the pollen help to provide steriodal constituents useful for encouraging the springtime reproductive energy of many wild animals (including us).

To learn more about how Pine Pollen can benefit you have a quick read of this article http://www.surthrival.com/news/pine-pollen-benefits/

DETAILS
Meet at 10:45am for a 11:00am start (don't be late or you may miss out on the adventure).

Begin by learning the step by step process of how to gather and preparing your own Pine Pollen Tincture.

Then spend the remainder of the time getting coated in the magical golden dust of the Pine Tree as you gather pollen until your heart is content.

WHAT TO BRING
You will be required to bring your own materials for harvesting Pine Pollen. 

Required - 1 x Extra Large Plastic Zip Lock Bag
Optional - 1 x Strainer

I have tried many different strategies and have found the most effective method to gather straight into a EXTRA LARGE zip lock plastic bag.

If you are 100% against the use of plastic you are welcome to bring an EXTRA LARGE brown paper bag (however it will not be slightly less efficient and potentially a disaster)

If you wish to sift your Pine Pollen on the day you may also bring a strainer of some sort.

TIME
11:00am - 1:00pm

COSTS
$20 Adults
$10 Children
