Foraging & Goose
from 2 hrs | max 15 people/session | year through
FORAGING & GOOSE
Learn more about foraging for edible plants or learn how to transform a dead goose into delicious food. This is a beautiful step in knowing where your food comes/can come from.
These sessions are hosted by Ellen Mookhoek.
Pending on the time of year and your wishes we can offer different sessions around foraging edible plants and mushrooms, how to set up an edible garden, or how to skin a goose or other game.
Ellen Mookhoek is a forager and one of the few female hunters in the Netherlands. Growing up among fields and orchards, she studied history at the University of Amsterdam. In her last job, she coached people in behavior change. Ten years ago, she stopped working for a boss to be able to work full-time with her hands in the earth and returned to her old love: nature.
As a vegetable gardener, she discovered the world of edible wild plants. While hunting for mushrooms and herbs, she also became interested in harvesting her own meat. Hunting and slaughtering completed the palette of eating from nature. She then founded De Brede Moestuin. Under this banner, she advises on the construction of edible gardens and guides people on eating from nature.
Her motto: "love for nature goes through the stomach"!
