The plant world is a banquet waiting to be discovered. Come join us as we partake in this great feast! With a caretaker’s attitude, you will learn how to confidently and safely identify, gather, and prepare wild edible meals. You will become acquainted with the wild edible plants that thrive around us while spending a great deal of time in the field identifying and collecting them.

“Survival” and “gourmet” cuisine will be explored using wild plants. As participants, you will receive many new recipes to impress your next dinner guest with the wonderful taste and bountiful nutrition that wild foods provide us. To round out the program, traditional uses of native plants will be covered, as well as poisonous look-alike plants. A highlight of this course is our Saturday evening meal cooked in a traditional steam pit. Students often retake this course at a different time of year or location to expand their knowledge of plant uses.
