Foraging Walk: Learn the food and medicine of your local landscape
We believe one of the closest and deepest relationships you can develop with nature is by engaging in reciprocity through foraging food and medicine.
These style of courses are designed to provide enough information for you to begin feasting safely on wild food and starting to harvest for your home medicine cabinet. Beginning your lifelong relationship between you and the forest. We will discuss plant, tree, and fungal food/medicines that are relevant to the time of year and ecosystem.
You will learn:
- how to confidently identify plants
- regenerative harvesting techniques
- how to avoid poisonous plants
- creating a delicious Wild Meal
- how to process and store edible plants
- and more!
Our approach is both intellectual and intuitive- allowing one to begin the practice of deep connection to the forest as well as individual plants. This course is intended to create multifaceted relationships with local plants to support your specific health needs on many levels.
We will be spending significant time outside regardless of the weather. We encourage you to be prepared for all types of weather and bring several layers (to stay warm and dry) so that you can be comfortable throughout the class.
Knife, Pencil, small journal/notepad, cloth bag or basket.
