City of Whittlesea Council, Fountain View Room 25 Ferres Blvd, South Morang
Wurundjeri Willum Clan and Taungurung Country

This no-cost, in-person workshop is the tenth in the City of Whittlesea's Sustainable Communities Workshop Series.
Ever wondered what edible plants are growing around you? With food prices continuing to rise, learning the age-old skill of foraging foods to supplement your diet (and keep the food bills down!) has become popular again. Join foraging expert, Anna The Urban Nanna, for a practical presentation on the basics of Urban Foraging.

The workshop will include:

- a checklist of commonly found plants in Victoria
- a taste-test of a few foraged-food snacks
suggestions on areas you may like to try out your new knowledge
- ID notes on a range of common edible flowers, fruits & leafy greens
the ins and outs of being an ethical forager

Attendees will also receive a follow-up list of useful resources and links to many wild-food recipes.

The CoW Sustainable Communities Workshop Series aims to up-skill City of Whittlesea community members in the art of sustainable, climate-resilient living and community-building.
Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions to be entered into a prize drawing at the series' end. Every workshop participant will also receive a certificate of recognition for their participation and have the opportunity to share their learnings and creations at the celebration showcase in November 2023.

The City of Whittlesea Council acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live, the Wurundjeri Willum Clan and Taungurung Peoples and we pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
