Discover Urban Foraging at Kickstart Arts

Learn when & where to forage fresh seasonal ingredients, and how to include them in your everyday cooking


Welcome to Kickstart Arts’ Creative Exchange: Sharing Skills and Culture.



Humans, by nature, are hunter gatherers.
We have become so disconnected with our food through daily life, seeking convenience over sustainability, flavour and health.
Foraging is important because it helps us reconnect with our food, and land.

You will receive an introduction to a variety of readily available ingredients, flavour profiles and how to use them.
We will discuss how to identify plants that you can forage that are in season, and discuss sustainable foraging.

Together we will cook up our seasonal foraged ingredients and eat together (please state if you have any allergies or dietary requirements when you book your ticket).

  • An opportunity to eat, drink and chat about foraging
  • Printed recipes of each dish or drink created during the workshop
  • A small collection of herbs and spices to experiment with at home.
  • You will learn vital life skills on how to identify and use edible food and harvest them sustainably.
  • Pen and notebook
  • Gardening gloves and scissors / pruning shears
  • 2 or 3 containers to take home samples

About Creative Exchange: Kickstart Arts value community skills and knowledge, so we started up Creative Exchange – Hobart’s newest destination for teaching, learning, sharing and collaborating!
