Spring Wild Edibles

Spring is here! Join us as we head outside and break the long “fast” of winter (eating dried/stored food) and get those first delicious spring greens into our diet. As always, we will add to our general knowledge of plant biology and understanding plant families, while building relationships with the vanguards of the growing season. We will – of course – harvest whatever we find, but we will have a special emphasis on the “classics” of spring, including:

  • The most remarkable Stinging Nettle (pesto, stirfry, potherb, and drying for tea and infusions)
  • The King of backyard edibles: Dandelion
  • Cattail: the grocery store for the wild harvester

NEW! Saturday-only option!

If weekend plans make it impossible to participate in the full 2 day course, this is a GREAT alternative. $97.50 for a day’s worth of wild plant knowledge.
