The arrival of spring brings with it the beauty of the earth’s awakening. Fields turn green, birds start singing again, flowers blossom in all their beauty, colours, scents. One of the main activities perfectly suited to this period is “herb collecting”. Today, we may have forgotten that not only cultivated plants, but also wild plants can aid our health. The “Discovering wild herbs” activity includes educational excursions to a WWF Oasis, a Regional nature reserve, to learn about the immense environmental and natural heritage and biodiversity of this protected area. During a guided walk, the group will come across both spontaneous edible and medicinal plants. Participants will learn about ethnobotany, food traditions, myths and legends of certain plants. At the end of the walk, several recipes will be prepared using the collected herbs.
