Workshop on Naturally Growing Wild Vegetables & Greens
Vegetables and greens that grow naturally without any cultivation or care are called wild vegetables. These plants mainly grow in forests, wilderness, edges of farmlands, and barren fields.
Wild foods have been gaining popularity over the years as they help build natural immunity and health. Eating seasonally can go a long way in making you more healthy, is environment friendly, and can help support the farm-to-table movement. Indians have been eating wild vegetables for thousands of years, but unfortunately, we lost track somewhere at the dawn of modern times. Tribals and rural Indians still value these wild vegetables. An interesting fact is that some wild vegetables have a dedicated cult following in urban areas & big cities where they are sold in special markets.
We’re now once again turning to our forefathers to understand the importance of wild foods and why we need to incorporate them into our diets. Come join us this Saturday on 9th April 4-5 pm for our workshop on “Naturally Growing Wild Vegetables & Greens” with our speaker Suresh Kumar G on a quick guide to the wild produce across India. A Sculpture Artist by profession and a proud father of a beautiful girl.
