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.
Sarah Burchard is the author of The Healthy Locavore, a natural foods chef and experience host whose writing focuses on cooking, holistic health, supporting community and eating locally grown and made foods.
