Spend the April 23 & 24 weekend with herbalist Alexandra Hudson learning how to nourish yourself with the vibrant variety of edible plants growing in the Bay Area.

Saturday morning: During an informative herb walk in the East Bay hills, you’ll learn to identify the plants and how to harvest and process them as you become acquainted with their edible and medicinal virtues. Learn about invasive and native plants that grow and fruit in abundance, and which wild edibles are rare and must not be collected.

Sunday morning: At a private venue on the Peninsula (or over Zoom, if preferred), you’ll enjoy demos of recipes that incorporate seasonal foods into delicious and invigorating dishes. Chosen recipes will illustrate extraction and food preservation techniques so you can incorporate these plants into your daily meals.
