Join instructor Zach Mermel of Ola Design Group for the Edible Wild Plants workshop on Sunday, April 2, 9 a.m . to 2 p.m. at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village.

Hawai’i’s year-round growing 
season offers a wide array of wild food options for intrepid locavores.

In this workshop lead by instructor Mermel of Ola Design Group, participants will interact first-hand with many of these under-appreciated edibles.

This is hands-on immersion for foragers and foodies; however, this is a discovery workshop only—no picking.

Learn about wild edibles like plantain/laukahi, sow thistle, cat’s ear and dandelion, mainly in Pu‘u Huluhulu cinder cone area.

The cost of the workshop is $40 and $30 for VAC members plus a $15 transportation fee.

Class size is limited so register early.

Attendees will meet at VAC’s Niaulani Campus. Transportation will be provided.

Remember, never eat anything from the wild without first consulting an expert! Forage responsibly.
