WHERE:  Carolinian Food Forest
COST:  $20

Join us for a walk in one of London's natural areas to harvest wild foods and learn the art of wild crafting.  We will pick seasonal edibles, and talk about preparation and cooking techniques.  The process of plant identification and best practices while foraging will be emphasized so that others in the present and in the future can continue to wild craft.

Thursday August 28.  INTRODUCTION TO FOOD FORESTS

WHEN: 18:00 - 20:00
WHERE:  Carolinian Food Forest
COST:  $30

Come walk through London's first public food forest with us and discover how it works, why it is special, and learn the building blocks to create your own food forest.  A food forest mimics the structure of a natural forest ecosystem but is mainly made up of edible plants.  The use of vertical layering allows much more to be grown in a given area than in a traditional vegetable garden.  The use of mostly perennial plants also means that once the forest is established there is very little maintenance work required.

Wednesday September 24. FORAGING WALK

WHEN: 18:30 – 20:00
WHERE: TBD
COST:
$20

Join us for a walk in one of London’s untended spaces to harvest wild foods and learn the art of wild crafting. We will pick seasonal edibles, talk about preparation and cooking techniques and discuss those we come across that are not in season. The process of plant identification and best practices while foraging will be emphasized so that others in the present and in the future can continue to wild craft.

Saturday November 8. BREADMAKING WORKSHOP

WHEN:  15:00 – 17:00
WHERE:  Wild Craft Permaculture
COST:  $35

Warm your home up this fall with fresh bread baking in your own oven. Learn the basics of bread making so you can experiment in your own kitchen and make bread to your liking.

You will learn 3 different styles of yeast breads to give you lots of options in the kitchen depending on your schedule. 1) a traditionally risen loaf, 2) a 5 minute bread, and 3) a long loaf with an overnight rise. Each participant will go home with dough they have mixed together that can be baked at any time over the following 2 weeks. And, of course, we’ll sample the goods together before you go home!

*Host a workshop in your own home with at least 5 people registering and you attend for free! Scheduled at your convenience. **Most workshops half price for your son or daughter (18 and under).  Contact us to arrange.
