events coming up

Forage to Feast is a series of seasonal edible adventures that sees a collaboration between renowned forager and environmental educator Diego Bonetto and your favourite stylist, designer, foodie and weed convert Marnee Fox. Building on Diego's much-loved weed foraging workshops, we are taking the food found on the foraging tour to the table. Following on from our sold out events, our next Forage to Feast is on September 1st which is not only the first day of Spring but Fathers day too. Punters will discover new flavours in surprising settings presented with the stylist's eye for aesthetics and love of up-cycling. Not only will you learn from Diego how to identify the food growing in your own backyard, I will teach you how to use these edible plants in delicious recipes and create a magazine-worthy presentation that will wow your guests at your next dinner party.           

I also offer styling services for events such as launches, intimate weddings, parties and photography shoots.
