Wild plants. Learning to recognize them and their therapeutical and cooking uses
November 7th 2015
Let’s discover again the pleasure of a walk in the country combined with learning! We will collect edible herbs which grow spontaneously; we’ll stay in touch with nature; we’ll spend some of our time in healthy promenades; we’ll learn how to improve and modify our food thanks to new ingredients and new flavors and taste. Doing so we may add new elements to our diet, important to keep us in good health.
Our proposal involves a gradual learning process with guided walks that allow the participants to detect and recognize herbs and gather them only when it is the right moment.
The course focuses people’s attention on neglected resources and overlooked potentialities offered by the territory . A push towards sustainable economy and a help to promote local areas!
The lessons are held by Giovanni Salerno botanist, florist, friend of the Hortus Urbis, expert in ethnographic botany.
