Wild! Beyond all expectations!
Being one with, and learning from nature is a significant blessing, especially in these times. This was absolutely the most important experience of the week!
What will you learn?
You will deepen your understanding of wild foods and the natural world, both on a cognitive and physical level. Through a combination of expert-led lessons and guided foraging hikes and cooking sessions, you'll learn how to identify and harvest wild edibles, prepare them in delicious recipes, and understand their nutritional and medicinal properties. Meanwhile you'll have the chance to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the stunning Spanish wilderness.
Next to gaining knowledge, there is also space for silence, alone-time in nature, and sharing. Creating a deep connection also to our own inner nature. Nourishing not only our bellies and bodies, but also our heart and soul.
And best of all, you'll be surrounded by like-minded and passionate people who share your love for nature and food. Together, we will restore our connection with our edible surroundings, explore the rich flavors of the wilderness, create unforgettable memories, and gain skills that will last a lifetime!
The wild location
The land on which the Can Cabota finca lies, has everything a forager wants: mushrooms galore, edible plants and trees everywhere, a river to take a *cold* dip in, an organic veggie garden, a young food forest, a water source... and a hammock for your after-lunch nap!
There’s fresh produce from the organic veggie garden, homemade sourdough bread, and plenty of wild foods right at our feet. We cook together either in the yurt or in the outdoor kitchen, we share recipes and joy.
It’s an amazing place to disconnect from the noise and chaos of everyday life and find peace in the simplicity of living off the land.
The Wild Food week was truly a journey to a "different" world than you're used to. Living a week entirely in rhythm and cooperation with nature was a highly valuable experience. It taught me how to rely on nature for food, while also emphasizing our role in that system and how we can give back. This experience has provided me with a tremendous amount of inspiration and motivation to bring these insights home with me.
