    Detailed programme

    Most of the “savoir-faire” (know how) that allowed us to survive thousands of years ago has almost disappeared in the previous years. The era of hunter-gatherers gave way to the industrialization of agriculture.

    Through walks, workshops and green outings in a magnificent setting, Monica invites you to discover wild edible plants and rediscover our previous food autonomy. Ethical and safe harvesting guaranteed! 

    Monica is what we call a “nature lover” who’s willing to share her passion. Through theoretical and practical explanations, you will discover and master the use of medicinal plants but also their contraindication, their preparation and the different ways of consuming the plants. Is there a better way than to consume organic, local and zero waste?

    You will expect: picking, wild cooking, hiking, orientation, medicinal transformations, water filtration techniques and bivouac (sleeping bag and tents will be available on site). Each activity generally lasts 3 hours and each day includes break time to rest. 

    Day 1: introduction to the orientation (understand how to locate and spot the plants in nature) then theoretical and practical course of wild cooking. 

    Day 2: reconnaissance walk and picking. After the meal, you will create a kit to treat yourself with the plants available at the season. 

    Day 3: review of orientation classes, hike-picking to arrive at the bivouac site. You will learn water filtration techniques, how to set up the bivouac and you will cook with what you collected. (You will spend the night in a tent or under the stars) 

    Final day: You will go back to the cottage and leave. 

    Monica also proposes another workshop, still on the theme of wild plants and still in Fraïsse-sur-Agout, entitled "From the plant to the remedy" which will focus more on the creation of galenic preparations (the form in which the active ingredients and excipients are put to constitute a medicine. This can be aqueous extractions, hydro-alcoholic macerations, capsules...). You will be able to take your remedies home with you.
