Tasting the Wild Food Forest

Hey everyone! Ever since the last walk I have been excited to get involved with things Alicia has been working on. October 27th she will be Instructing a class at the Soil Born Farms- PreRegister and for the discounted rate be sure to tell them your with the foraging group. Should be a fun informative day. Hope to see you there- Eddie

Local food gets a whole new twist when you learn to use the edible wild plants that abound in our region. Join us and hone your hunter-gatherer instincts as we walk along the American River and identify and collect wild foods. Then we’ll prepare them and learn about the health benefits they provide. Turn oak nuts into flour and taste oak nut gingerbread, make antioxidant-rich Toyon berry cider and fermented Manzanita cider, and discover health benefits and uses for other wild foods.

Instructor: Alicia Funk, Author of Living Wild

"The class is $45 or $35 for Co-op owners, but we can extend the owner discount to the group. They can call our registration line directly to register: [masked]."
Hope to see you!

    Alicia gave a great class today involving many native plant recipes and samples. We looked at the native plant nursery, went for a nice outdoor plant walk where we talked about several species with a focus on oak. We learned that one full grown oak tree can produce around 2000 lbs of oak nuts (acorns) which can easily be stored as a staple food for over a year or two. It’s easy to understand why native americans included them as a staple in their diet. You do have to know how to prepare and leach them though. After the walk we went back to the class and cracked the oak nuts and lightly ground them to prepair to be leached. Some great knowledge.

    Hi there. I'm so sorry that I cannot make this Soil Born Farm extravaganza. I'm a real fan of Alicia Funk, and our meetup group. Thanks for arranging this Edward. I'll will be busy in a class from 7 am-2 pm Oct. 27. Darn. Incidentally, I'm busy writing a new book - A Nutritional Guidebook and Cookbook entitled: I HATE to COOK but I WANT to be HEALTHY. Darn - What will be do without Lean Cuisine and Carl Jr's, Turkey burgers? Better get foraging. Have a great time and please let me know about it. Deborah
