Introduction to picking wild spring plants

This workshop is part of a series of introductory gathering workshops developed for each season and will allow you to come into contact with a little-known or forgotten world: that of mushrooms and wild plants. These workshops present different specimens and can therefore be followed in series or à la carte according to your needs.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to recognize the main NTFPs to harvest in spring. You can, just like our ancestors did, add them to your table as an accompaniment, as a herbal tea or use them for therapeutic purposes with different recipe ideas that will be presented to you.
