Edible wild Herbs & Flowers picking course

A day to discover the treasures hidden in the endless green countryside of Montalcino & the Val d'Orcia, among the hills, fields and olive groves. A unique experience to mend the broken thread that united us time to Mother Nature.

Walk with an expert over the rolling hills of Montalcino as you look for edible wild flowers, herbs and fruits. Learn about the tools used and the best times of year to pick wild herbs in addition to picking techniques, choosing, cleaning and conserving them. Some secrets about their use in the kitchen and their medicinal purposes will also be revealed.

This half-day course changes every seasons. Led by a lady with experience, is ideal to be briefly introduced to the techniques of observation and picking of the most common and tasty herbs in an easy walk of about two hours with basket and cutter provided. On the small graphical reference booklet we will give to you, will be possible taking notes and coloring with pencils.

Upon returning to the farm you will learn how to choose and clean the harvest and then join the demonstration of cooking. Finally, we will enjoy our lunch together together!
