You’ll learn how to find food in a pinch and where to safely forage on the coast. You’ll learn how to find sustainable edible wild weeds, nutrient rich plants for survival and beach forage super-foods like seaweeds and shellfish. We’ll cover any poisonous plants you should avoid and simple cooking methods for the food you find. To be clear, the format of this workshop consists of 2 hrs of Robin’s original video content (that you can watch and re-watch over the next year) and a 1 hr live Zoom session.
Robin will host the 1 hr live Zoom session on October 13th, 6-7 pm. The live session will begin with learning about a local edible plant not covered in the online module – wild chamomile! In addition, Robin will demo and briefly go over a few more currently available edible weeds. The final 30 minutes of the session will be an opportunity for questions from participants.
For the past 10 years, Chef Robin Kort has been teaching foraging programs from wild mushrooms to winter foraging classes in and around her hometown Vancouver, Canada. Her experience spans from being a commercial wild foods supplier for Vancouver’s high end restaurants to bringing agrologists and forestry students into the field for lectures on traditional food plants of BC. Robin is a native Vancouverite who grew up hiking the mountains and swimming the seas of the Pacific Northwest and would love to share her knowledge of her home with you.
