Wild Edibles class and walk Saturday February 9th 1-3:30 pm

  • Feb 9, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • Rabbit Hole Hollow

There wild growing foods out there in February.

This is short notice because the weather forecast for Saturday is amazing! Mild weather is good for outdoor learning! (2/8 edit ... the weather forecast has changed to call for less splendid weather.. but we will be so focused on plants and learning, you won't notice the weather! It is cooler out here than in the city, so bring a sweater more than you would need in town.)

This is an introductory level class on my rustic land. Many of the plants are ones commonly found in Nashville lawns and unmown areas, thickets and woods.  It is a great start to plant studies! We will talk about each plant's usefulness .  We will see what is edible in lawn, meadows, and forest/thicket edges.  Bring walk shoes, as we will probably look around in the woods a bit too.

Bring a way to record images, plant names and other notes. After the walk, I will mail attendees a list of the plants we find with their common and botanical names, to aid you in your studies. Seeing the plant on the ground is way different than seeing it in a book or the Internet. Once you know it on the ground, other information about the plant will be easier to organize in your mind.

This class is $10 per person (no charge for young people under 15 years old).
