Urban foraging
Feb 11 @ 10:00 – 12:30

Anna, the Urban Nanna, will help you find and identify a range of edible fruits, greens and flowers found in ‘wild’ urban spaces across Victoria. You will learn about the basic principles and protocols of foraging, and then move on to plant specifics. You will observe and interact with many types of fruit trees, edible green weeds and useful flowers. You will examine examples of trees bearing late summer fruit, and also be shown the physical features you can use to correctly identify useful trees even when they’re not fruiting. You will discuss the types of locations where you can hunt for wild edibles in the future, and finally how to safely prepare and enjoy eating many of the foods we find.

Overall, there will be around 1-2km of walking over grassy terrain involved.

End of summer fruit tree pruning @ Strathdon House and Orchard Precinct
Feb 25 @ 10:00 – 13:00

Join them amongst the former and grafted apple trees at Strathdon House to learn all the ins & outs, and cuts & trims that produce healthy, bountiful fruit trees. Deciduous fruit trees are traditionally pruned in winter but in Melbourne’s temperate climate, trees don’t go fully dormant so winter pruning just encourages tall whippy growth that will have to be pruned-off anyway.
