What you'll do

On the activity Slow Food tour at thee Municipal Park, the visitor will enter in contact with parts of this Park (an icon and heritage of the city) that are unexplored or noted both by residents and tourists. Meanwhile we walk, I explain about culture and history of the Park and the main plants of the itinerary, their edible and medicinal uses, as well as their aspects related to the local landscaping, a manner to share a little bit of my Landscaping knowledge aqcquired at the graduation. It is an unique opportunity to see the city through the lush nature it encompasses!

We will gather at the entrance of the Francisco Nunes Theater, in which it will happen the attendant's presentation and the activity's explanation. Afterwards we are going to make a circular way through the park, observing around 30 species of edible plants and enjoying the local's landscaping. In the middle of the path we will make a brief lunch.

I am the creator of the project "Jaca Verde PANC" that since 2016 promotes unique and unusual experiences of rediscovering of wild edible plants, less known by the residents of big cities but that are part of the food culture of many people and traditional communities throughout the countryside part of the country: the NUS (neglected and underutilized species). Jaca Verde PANC is an invitation to meet and be fascinated with these plants, know their uses, through guided tours in neighborhoods, parks and green areas of the city, which have much more to offer than the usual touristic sites. At the guided tours, (also on the courses and workshops) the attendants have the chance to connect with history and food culture in an exclusive and fun way: a 100% Slow Food experience, movement of which I am member and activist of good, clean and fair food!

Fui para o passeio sem conhecer nada a respeito do assunto e me surpreendi com o carisma, atenção e acolhida do Lucas. O cuidado com os detalhes, a preocupação com o nosso bem estar, o carinho e cuidado ao trazer um lanche para nós, enfim... superou minhas expectativa. Eu não conseguiria ter a mesma visão e conhecimento do parque sem a participação do Lucas. Super recomendo.

It was a wonderful experience. I learned a lot about non-native species in the municipal park. Lucas and his mother were lovely people and they prepared interesting food and drink (preserves, desserts, tea) with native fruits and flowers, which they let me taste. I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends and any others who visit Belo Horizonte.

Muito interessante andar pelo Pq Mun. é conhecer usos de árvores e plantas que parecem estar ali apenas pelo paisagismo, mas que podem ser fonte de alimentos pra pessoas e animais.
