This course aims to teach you how to identify and forage for edible wild plants which you can use to make your own blend of herbal teas. This course will be held in English.
Did you know that our grandmothers knew how to make their own herbal tea and coffee with local plants? Welcome to a wonderful botanical walk where you will gain knowledge about nature's pantry. During this walk, you will forage for many wild edibles and then create your own custom tea blend by combining leaves, petals, roots, seeds, of plants found. Through this course you will learn how to dry plants, and which plants to combine for making delicious teas. This knowledge will allow you to become more autonomous in foraging for wild edible plants and for creating your custom pantry.
We meet at Bouleråker Boulebanan, Ullerakersvägen 2, 756 43 Uppsala and walk along the paths a short distance away.
No prior knowledge is required to participate in this course.
