Virtual herb walk

This is the start of my main edible and medicinal herb walk season and it’s beautiful here in Amsterdam.

Wild garlic – Ramsons – Daslook.

The plants are looking wonderful. Bumble bees are buzzing and caterpillars are already nibbling the nettles.

River of Herbs Orchards – Park Frankendael.

There’s no need for me to purchase as many vegetables as usual because I’m adding fresh Stinging nettle and Ramsons to my diet each day.

However…

I’ve decided to try to bring some of the wild city edibles to the virtual doorsteps of those of you who are hungry to learn.

Purple Deadnettle.

One day next week, I’ll go for a solo herb walk, somewhere very quiet, during my daily fresh air break. I’ll pretend that you’re with me – in a good way 😉 I’ll record it and share it so that you can see what’s around.

I’ll perhaps look like a mad plant lady as I walk around talking to plants but what’s new? I’d like you to see the plants and learn from them. We need to know what grows around us and how to use them safely and ethically.

Magnolia at Linneaushof.

Some which we find may be growing right outside of your window, right now. Some may be invading your balcony pots. Let’s see what turns up.

If you would like to see the orchards and hear some bird song, hop over to the River of Herbs blog as I’ve posted a few green video clips and photos there this week.

If you’d like to join my free virtual walk, let me know, preferably in the comments box below and I’ll inform you when it’s online.

Journey well, Green Freinds.
