Forage for indigenous veld foods Workshop at Babylonstoren
25 August, 10h00 – 15h00
Presented by Ernst van Jaarsveld and the garden team
Only 20 places available
For thousands of years, the indigenous peoples of southern Africa survived in the veld by foraging for their food – bulbs, shoots, flowers and fruit. Starting with a walk through the garden, botanist Ernst van Jaarsveld will share his vast knowledge of South Africa’s indigenous edibles, teaching guests how to recognise seasonal plants that they can pick and nibble on. Guests will also learn how to propagate these edible varieties to take home and plant there.
Our guests are invited to a lunch menu inspired by the indigenous food plants discussed in the workshop, served in the Bakery.
