Hawai’i’s year-round growing season offers a wide array of wild food options for intrepid localvores. From seeds to leaves, stems to fruits: you can learn what is edible and what is not in the Edible Wild Plants workshop. In this workshop, participants will interact first-hand with many of these underappreciated edibles. This is discovery only – no picking! Learn about wild edibles like plantain/laukahi, sow thistle, cat's ear, and dandelion, mainly in Pu'u Huluhulu cinder cone area. This is Hands-On immersion for foragers & foodies! Join instructor Zach Mermel of Ola Design Group for the Edible Wild Plants workshop on Sunday, April 2, 9am - 2pm at VAC’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village. Cost: $40/ $30 VAC Members plus a $15 transportation fee. Class size is limited so register early. Call 808-967-8222 or visit www.volcanoartcenter.org. Attendees will meet at VAC’s Niaulani Campus. Transportation will be provided. Remember: Never eat anything from the wild without first consulting an expert! Please forage responsibly. Educate yourself, and have fun.
