Welcome to our walk in our natural kingdom!
Oregano has come into blossom in our land and gives its special aroma to the summer atmosphere. As the blossom, the time has come for us to collect. On Tuesday, July 11th we get together and learn to gather oregano the right way, on our fields, with the opportunity for each participant to keep some for personal use.
We learn how to dry and keep the amazing strong fragrance of oregano! Then we learn with the children (and adults) how to make windmills from the soft wood of asphodelus. We close our learning circle with a small meal prepared from what we momentarily find in our garden!
Our friend Manolis who is a biological farmer and plant lover, had the inner desire and need that guided him to share and offer us the chance to experience and learn how to identify wild edible plants, herbs, and greens that grow in the abundant nature of Crete.
Manolis, as always, will share and offer us the chance to experience and learn how to identify wild edible plants, herbs, and greens that grow in nature, as well as beautiful rare plants only for the pleasure of the eyes. Take a walk with us and enjoy a morning of exploration, foraging, identification and recognition of nature’s wild edible plants and aromatic herbs.
We close our learning circle by sharing our experiences during a small meal prepared from what momentarily is found in Manolis’ garden!
