A wild edibles walk and feast with a focus on spring shoots and early summer greens.
Learn how the earth sustains and nourishes us. Abundant food is growing around us for free in the wild! All we have to do is learn how to use it. This practical, hands-on series will focus on wild food harvesting, processing and preservation with a particular focus on ways to extend the harvest through the year. Gain hands-on experiences gathering food from the wild. The first half of each class will focus on identifying and harvesting plants and the second half will focus on processing the wild materials into wholesome and delicious foods. This class includes a light feast featuring wild edibles served in gourmet style.
Anyone can talk about wild foods but true learning comes through direct experience. These intensives pick up where other plant walks leave off. They are highly recommended for anyone who is interested in understanding wild edible plants through personal, hands-on experience. Find out how you can bring home the best of each season. This month we will focus on shoots and summer greens.
