We'll start this class by practicing honorable harvesting methods and plant stewardship as we select the plant parts we need to store and cook them. You’ll learn when and where to look for the Top 10 Edible Plants (http://www.wolfcollege.com/top-10-most-important-wild-edible-food-plants/) of our region, and how to identify and prepare them. We’ll also spend some time examining poisonous look-a-likes and we’ll discuss safety in the forest. Finally, we'll go on a foray for wild edible insects (http://www.wolfcollege.com/tips-for-eating-edible-insects/)!

Adults as well as families with children ages 5 and up are invited to register. Younger children may attend for free, with the understanding that an enrolled parent may have to go in and out of class as needed when lecture or activities are not age appropriate. Expect a class that provides you with generous information, hands-on experiential learning, and heart-felt inspiration.
