Part of being a locavore is knowing what kind of foods grow where you live and when they are in season. When you start looking into the wild you can see what is thriving around you. These ingredients, when left up to nature, don’t need any help from us at all.

This month’s Pupus With A Purpose event will focus on ingredients that are Wild, Invasive and Delicious. Author, speaker and expert on wild edibles––Sunny Savage will be our special guest for the evening. You will learn which species of plants and animals are invasive to Hawaii and why it is important for us to reshape our relationship with them.

Sunny will provide many of the wild ingredients that you will find on your plate. You will get to hear the stories of how they got there and learn more about urban foraging. Sunny is currently working on a new app (slated to launch in 2020) that will enable you to find wild edible ingredients no matter where you are in Hawaii. You too can forage your own food and help manage invasive species!

Chef Sarah Burchard will work her magic with the ingredients Sunny forages along with wild and/or invasive meats provided by Jessica Rohr of Forage Hawaii. Her intention with the menu is to make these ingredients so enticing, that you are inspired to use them in your own cooking. Each pupu will comprise several wild ingredients combined with local ingredients grown on island by organic farms, and everything from the wild yeast fermented sourdough to hand cracked inamona will be made in house.

As always the purpose of this event is to support local, inspire you to think differently about where you source your food and encourage you to make choices from a conscious place in your heart, so that positive change can happen in our food system. Hope to see you there!

In the mystical world of the wild Sunny Savage is able to connect. She has the innate ability to translate what is happening in nature, what is safe to eat and which plants have the capability to help us thrive. As an educator she teaches people how they can connect to the land through food and increases a sense of food security by showing us how to forage for ourselves.

Sunny has a Bachelor’s of Science in Dietetics, a Master’s of Science in Nutrition Education and has traveled extensively on all 7 continents foraging and learning about wild edibles along the way. She knows the medicinal benefits of these foods and the role they play in nature. She is the author of Wild Food Plants of Hawai’i, the host of the show “Hot On The Trail with Sunny Savage” and her TED talk “You can eat that––The gift of wild foods” has received over 9,000 views on YouTube. Her new app Savage Kitchen Edible Invasive Species, promising to link you to 5 edible invasive plants in your own back yard (that is, if you live in Hawaii), is slated to launch next year.

As advocates of sourcing wild and invasive foods it was only fitting we invite Sunny to be our special guest at the next Pupus With A Purpose event to help us continue our mission of creating conscious change in our food system.

We are thrilled to have her and hope you will save the date so you can experience her nurturing soul, the gifts of the wild and another deliciously informative  community gathering with The Healthy Locavore and Forage Hawaii.
