The field and forest hold an incredible abundance of nutritious plants to promote good health and healing in every season. Join local ethnobotanist Karen Sherwood to explore the pathway to understanding and using these amazing gifts. This program begins in our classroom covering the ethics of harvesting and then continues as we tour local trails on an informative walk. Here, local wild edible plants will be pointed out so students can learn to easily identify and learn of their wonderful uses. Edible, medicinal, as well as utilitarian and historical uses, will be expanded upon. Students will then return to the classroom-kitchen to see and help prepare plants which have previously been harvested. Karen will share some of her most popular wild foods recipes she has created over the last 30 years ranging from survival to gourmet cuisine. Each month's class brings fresh seasonal plants with new recipes. Join one or join all of the classes as we tour through the seasons and learn how to invite the wild into our lives.
