Spring Nettle Foraging with Slow Food Seattle
Join Slow Food members & friends on Saturday, March 30th for an afternoon spent identifying, harvesting, and sharing recipes & uses for stinging nettles.
Our location is yet to be determined and will depend on what is available to harvest. Ticket holders will be emailed the location a week before the event. Rest assured - the event will be held within Seattle city limits, and accessible by public transportation. Please feel free to email us with any questions or concerns ahead of time.
Experienced nettle foragers & Slow Food Board Members Renai Mielke & Julia Wayne will be leading this two hour class. We'll go over how to identify stinging nettles, safe & ethical harvesting practices, as well as our favorite ways to use & store them once home.
Please meet us in our designated area promptly at 12 PM. We'll spend a few short minutes talking before heading out to hunt, and will not be easy to locate once we begin. We will be doing some easy paced hiking, likely no more than 2 miles.
We ask that you bring a pair of gloves to wear while harvesting (rubber gardening gloves, or dish gloves are best), and a plastic or cloth produce bag to collect nettles. We highly recommend wearing both long sleeves as well as long pants, and avoiding open toed shoes. Please dress for Seattle weather.
Each attendee will leave the class with their own harvest of nettles and an information sheet to use as a resource once home.
We will have some nettle filled treats to share at the end of the event. Please feel free to bring a light snack to share once we are done harvesting.
