Foraging provides many avenues of connection with nature and fosters a greater appreciation of the many things that local landscapes can provide for us.
Students should expect to spend much of the weekend outside identifying, collecting, and preparing wild plants for food (so be prepared for weather and uneven terrain).
Class will focus on gathering plant foods and medicines that are appropriate for the season (nuts, legumes, fall roots and tubers, and wild rice--as available).
Throughout the class, simple tools will be used and reference will be made to primitive and contemporary methods of processing plants. As well, wildcrafted medicine and utilitarian plants will be discussed to provide a more holistic understanding of how plants can positively affect our lives.
Wild nutrition is both a link to the past and a gateway to a sustainable future.
I will be providing 7 meals over the course of three days which will be locally and seasonally focuses, featuring many of the ingredients you will learn and discuss with Arthur throughout the weekend.
