History and little secrets of wild plants
Plants, our everyday allies
Edible wild plants have been the allies of the inhabitants of the Luberon area from time immemorial. Slip into your hiking shoes and head out on the specialist-interest trail, where you’ll learn all about past and present wild plant picking traditions around the Pays de Forcalquier and Lure mountain. Not to be missed too: the botanical walks at Les Graves, Abbaye Notre-Dame-de-Lure and Les Crêtes de Lure. And if you’re in the Préalpes d’Azur Regional Nature Reserve, book a guided tour with Isabelle Weber – a fabulous opportunity to learn how to recognize various medicinal and edible wild plants and get to know their natural properties and countless uses in everyday life. Please remember to only pick a small amount to preserve our environment.
