Want to learn how to feed yourself and your family with food that is exceptionally nutrient-rich, delicious, and FREE? In these uncertain times, living as a society that relies on a completely artificial system (even for our most basic needs) with foundations that are shakier than ever before... connecting with the real, natural world we live in is deeply empowering and comforting.
Experience the peaceful, joyful meditation of acquiring your food while walking on the earth, the wind delighting your skin and the sun warming your body, fresh air filling your lungs, harvesting living plants that are so much fresher than anything from the grocery store. Truly know where your food comes from!
This event is in Bastrop, in the Texas Hill Country near Austin.
We will take a plant walk all over the land to gather the special wild edibles of late winter in Texas. You will learn about them and be able to taste them as we go!
You will receive recipes and ideas for feeding yourself and your family from the land. Class investment is $30 per person. We are also open to partial or full barters (contact us for details). Children are welcome to attend (8 and under at no cost); please ask about family pricing.
What to bring:
Wear plenty of warm clothing!! Layers are best. Wear comfortable walking shoes or boots (it may be muddy if it rains). Bring a canvas bag to collect edibles as we walk, your own bowl and utensils to enjoy a wild green salad we will create from our bounty, and a camera if you'd like to photo the edibles we discover!
