Hi, I’m Mattea, and I live in Amsterdam 🙂 I am very excited to start this herbology course finally!
About my foraging context: I just found out that foraging is actually illegal in the Netherlands, which, to be honest, doesn’t surprise me that much. I have gone foraging with a guide twice and a few times by myself with friends of mine. I really enjoyed starting to get to know plants more and more. I also volunteer in a permaculture garden where many native plants that attract bees and butterflies grow. Thus, I forage in that garden, but also in parks (Gaasperplas, Twiske) and sometimes in the city (e.g. Elderflower that grows around the centre of Amsterdam).
