Wild Eatables and Medicinals Class
Wild plant food in the spring is a wonderful way to shake off the gray stillness of winter and get things moving again.
Most spring wild plant edibles are good for cleansing a sluggish digestive track, getting your blood moving again and generally very nutrifying to the body as a whole. In the spring life is budding and this emerging energy is an amazing thing to take part of in a connective and holistic way.
Here in the Northwest we are fortunate to have access to such a healthy and divers ecosystem and for the opportunities to connect and take part of it in a nourishing and meaningful way.
This 5 hour class is designed to introduce the students to a variety of wild plants that are good for eating and making medicine for varying ailments. Students will learn how to identify these plants, where they typically live and grow, how to harvest ethically, sustainably and respectfully, how to prepare and store them, what ailments the medicinal herbs are used for and how to prepare and store the herbs for your own home apothecary.
