Join naturopath Paloma Velásquez for health-boosting ideas using simple seasonal produce (including weeds!) to make memorable meals.
Dr. Paloma Velásquez is a Chilean Medical Doctor, Naturopath and Medical Herbalist. She founded Aruraqi, and the Healthy Meal Preparation class which started in 2018.
It is her mission to aid, support and educate people to improve their wellbeing and empower them to take control over their health.
Learn how to make healthy meals from simple recipes which use plenty of seasonal vegetables, fruits, and whole foods. You will improve your understanding of what smarter food choices can do for your health, while cooking and sharing tasty meals with others.
This workshop is for anyone who is interested in improving their cooking skills and nutritional literacy at any life stage, for ages 12 and up.
Meals are primarily plant-based and we will harvest veges, herbs and edible ‘weeds’ from the EcoMatters spray free, uncertified organic gardens.
Note: Hand sanitizer on arrival. Masks recommended, spacing according to Covid level restrictions.
Please stay at home if you are unwell.
"This workshop… expanded my ideas, nutrition and concept of what constitutes food - amazing!
Going up to the garden and learning about the medicinal properties of the parts of several plants, then preparing the food together and eating it - very special."
