Foraging and cooking workshop with Karmen Gajšek
The foraging and cooking workshop will focus on edible and medicinal WILD PLANTS. The workshop will be led by Karmen Gajšek, M.Sc. prof. geo. and soc., a collector and herbalist from Kozjansko, who explores, presents and lives with the preciousness of nature under the name “Where are those flowers?”. The intertwining of knowledge, love and imagination conjures up a series of delicious, healthy and environmentally friendly adventures.
Karmen teaches responsible foraging, sustainable and subsistence living, guides towards food without pesticides and packaging, and shows how we can avoid industrial food and how we can live in harmony with local plant resources; native and lovingly organically grown plants (vegetables, fruits, cereals, nuts and seeds).
You’ll get answers to questions about plants, and you’ll probably be surprised by what is and isn’t edible. And your stomach will be satisfied, too, as we’ll enjoy a snack, toast with a wild drink, and finally create a wild lunch together in the great outdoors. We will prepare the plants in a way that combines wild and organically grown – home-grown – to create an explosion of health and flavour. Because “ECO + LOCAL is ideal” and WILD is even more!
