Urban Foraging Tour with Google

For Googlers Only:

Come take a walk through the Dublin City streets you thought you knew on a search for edible wild plants!  Wild plants are significantly more nutrient dense than any domesticated plant available at the market.  And, humans have subsisted on a diet of wild plants for 99% of the time we have been on this planet.  However, very few of us have ever eaten a wild plant, much less are able to identify them.  You don’t need to drive hours and get lost in the middle of the woods to find edible wild plants.  In fact, they are all around us – even in the city!  This guided urban foraging tour through Dublin will completely transform the way you look at the weeds you pass by every day on your way to work!

This is the 14th year of the festival, which takes place from Friday 11th May to Sunday 13th May in Co. Clare. This year's theme is Taste the Atlantic – A Seafood Journey.

Highlighting a selection of events on the programme, which includes a ferry ride from Doolin for a seafood supper on the smallest Aran Island, Inis Oírr, Birgitta Hedin Curtin described this year’s festival as “boutique and busy”.

As well as the seafood supper, regular festival events return including the food and craft market and cookery demonstrations by chefs including Niall Sabongi and award winning cookbook author Trevis Gleason.
