Foraging & Feasting: Field Trip to Dina Falconi’s Garden, Kitchen & Apothecary
Join us at the wild herb gardens and permaculture homestead of Dina Falconi for a day considering wild and cultivated herbs as food and medicine. We will learn to identify wild edible and medicinal plants that grow abundantly and readily in the region along with their healing and nutritional properties. Participants will gain hands–on experience processing and tasting wild foods through participating in the preparation of a wild food lunch and drink. Particular preparation techniques to optimize nutritional value will be discussed. The day will conclude with a tour of a working apothecary where herbs are processed and many forms of herbal preparations are made. Participants will prepare and take home an herbal tincture.
