Foraged Foods for Female Health

Workshop Details:

Join Nina Lawrin of Loveren Collections to learn about 5-6 wild edible foods to optimize female hormonal health and everyday living.  The workshop will introduce “everyday foraging,” a way to incorporate perennial and wild foods into daily meals. Some of the most nutritious plants are the ones we overlook, the “weeds.” Being a female and hyper sensitive to chemicals, there are certain foraged foods that can help support the female hormonal cycle while eating wild foods.

This combination lecture/hands-on workshop will teach you all you need to know about foraging for female health. During the workshop, we’ll make a foraged vinegar (to take home) and local, wild, foraged lunch (included in ticket price).

Participants will learn:

  • how to identify 5-6 wild edible plants
  • what parts of the plant are edible
  • the many benefits of foraging for female health
  • how to prepare and use foraged foods
  • how to make foraged vinegar

Participants will leave with: 

  • a foraged vinegar
  • a sample menu for each hormonal phase
  • a recipe for wild foraged salad & dressing
