Dandelion Botanical Company
has been hosting this class for the last several years, and it only happens once a year. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of North America's most respected sources of herbal knowledge.
Ryan Drum is a scientist, herbalist, and local seaweed expert. He has been growing, harvesting, and teaching about medicinal and edible plants for 40 years in the Pacific Northwest. Ryan has a strong background in chemistry, cellular biology, and plant and human physiology. All of this he infuses with knowledge of the land; rich with story, ecology and playfulness.
Wear a hat and dress for all kinds of weather – it can get pretty cold out there. Good rubber boots are recommended, or for the hardy, some water socks. At the end of the class we will gather together on the beach for lunch. Ryan will continue to share seaweed information and answer questions. Please bring a treat to share - Ryan delights in wild foods. Bring a sack lunch and plenty of fluids.
We will not be legally allowed to harvest seaweed at this location. So, Ryan will be bringing an assortment of his carefully harvested Sea vegetables, if you want to purchase some. Everyone is encouraged to take a look at his website www.ryandrum.com to read more about radiation issues and seaweed.
