Det skal I lave
In a day’s workshop, we will go out on to my land, in a beautiful valley near the xisto village of Benfeita. Barefoot, we walk to my spring to give thanks and arrive in the present, attuning to the wild nature within and around us. Then we'll each choose a basket from my collection and go out as a group. I teach as we gather. During our gentle walk (with shoes on) of no more than a kilometre, it's important to first identify the few poisonous plants. Then we will get on with filling our baskets with the delicious, edible plants as I share with you their many properties. We’ll take our laden baskets to my outdoor kitchen or the wild hearth by the waterfall, where I will guide the preparation of a sumptuous and exquisite feast, which we’ll eat together. The whole day is a delight, putting us back in touch with the Earth and the wisdom of our Ancestors. I ask you not to photograph or make notes during the walk so we can be fully immersed in the experience. At the end of the day, you can take home with you an illustrated booklet that I've put together of the local plants I've taught you with recipe suggestions.
Det er inkluderet
We will prepare an early dinner together with the wild food we have gathered.
To begin we will pick wild herbs from the garden by the house and make a pot of delicious, healing tea to share. We can fill…
Baskets for gathering plants and all equipment for preparing our meal.
I have been teaching wild food for nearly 50 years. I grew up learning Nature's gifts from my mother's passion and expertise. It was a central and natural part of my life as a child. There are some inspiring books on the subject, yet unless you are already familiar with our wild plants it’s essential to accompany someone who is. In England and France I taught this ancient art to many groups. Now, having lived ten years in Central Portugal, I have become familiar with more plants local to this area which I forage and eat every day as well as those I grow. I live my deep love and gratitude for the Earth and am passionate about sharing this knowledge.
Her skal du være
The experience takes place on my private land. We'll explore different terrains, including the flower garden, and upper terraces, then down to the valley floor and vegetable and forest garden by the secluded, shady river and waterfall.
