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.
