Some Recent Foraging Classes and Reviews

I want to apologize for not updating the class schedule here. We've had a very packed chol hamoed; I taught a group class in Efrat on Sunday, April 1, starting behind the matnasit and going over the bridge and then into Park Hashibolim.

Today, April 2 I taught a private foraging and cooking class for a family get together, where we made cheese and then used it in our kosher lipesach and kitniyot free Indian curry, palak paneer, which we ate over potatoes, and a delicious salad, using a variety of wild veggies, from dock to wood sorrel to garland chrysanthemum to salsify to milk thistle.



After that, I taught a group foraging class also in the Ramot forest.

Tomorrow, April 3, I will be teaching a class in Beitar starting near the Iriya, and going down into the Wadi between Giva A and B.

I wanted to share a few reviews that I got recently.

I've taken tours from Ronit, she is energetic, knowledgeable, kid-friendly, and FUN. Really enhanced my knowledge and appreciation of the flora (plants) of the Holy Land. -Rachel H.

We went on a foraging tour of the Ramot forest with Ronit today. We had a great time, learnt so much from the plants around us. My son (aged 8) was particularly inspired by the tour and has started foraging in our garden?! Ronit is a naturally confident tour guide who really knows her foraging stuff inside out, she answered any question thrown at her. You can tell she lives, breathes, eats foraging (literally). It’s a healthy reminder to take a look at what’s around, for free, and help get back to basics. Recommend for children 5 plus, make sure the weather isn’t too hot as the forest is less dense than you might imagine. Recommend going in smaller groups- 3 to 4 families but Ronit is flexible with helping get groups together. Really recommend and we plan on doing the cooking foraging class in the future. Thanks so much for a great, inspiring afternoon. -Rachel C.

My 6-year-old son and I went on Ronit's foraging tour today, and we both had a great time. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the land of Israel and wants to know what it produces, or who is looking for a fun family activity, even if they don't plan to start foraging in practice (and all the more so if they do). Ronit provided an impressive amount of information in a clear and interesting manner. If participating with small children, bring snacks in addition to water and hats: the tour, while not physically demanding, is quite long (2 hours). -Raanan E.

מדהים ונעים להכיר את צמחי מאכל שיש לנו בטבע, ממש בכל פינה.
הסדנא של רונית מעשירה וטעימה
מומלץ !
-Iris G.


My friends and I enjoyed a great morning out with Ronit! She taught us so much about foraging and the meal we made afterwards was very very tasty! Highly recommended!
-Julie Z.
