We’ll explore the Berlin Wall’s former "no man’s land,” where we’ll pick edible, wild plants. I’ll teach you about the local wild herbs, berries, and fruit that grow here. Together we'll turn them into a delicious picnic lunch. This is as fresh and local as you can get. This means we’ll be eating what’s in season, and each month can be very different. We’ll find wild garlic in May, ground elder and salt bush in June, cherries in July, blackberries in August, and sometimes even pears in September. Along the way I’ll share stories about Berlin’s complex history and its people.
I'm a food designer and consultant, but also a food activist and forager. I believe that food is an incredible tool for telling stories and understanding culture.

We’ll meet at the Treptower Park S-Bahn station. From there we’ll retrace where the Berlin Wall used to be. Today, the area is a green space for walking and biking. We’ll end with a picnic at the Britzer Canal, partly prepared with the wild ingredients we find along the way.
Eat the Wall.
