Skokomish elder Bruce Miller once said, “The trees were our first teachers.” Trees are models of adaptability, resourcefulness, and collaboration. They live in one place their entire lives, building the structures and relationships they need to thrive. In this workshop we will investigate three common deciduous trees that contribute to the health and diversity of Northwest landscapes, especially in wetlands and riparian zones. We will make medicine from bark and buds and create rooting water for stimulating plant starts. Participants will receive a curriculum with the ecological, medicinal, and technological significance of these three wondrous trees. Taught by members of the Tend, Gather and Grow team.

We are offering a sliding scale for this workshop. Proceeds will cover shipping and supply costs and support GRuB programs.

This class will be taught on Zoom online conferencing – a free platform. Participants will need wifi internet and to download the Zoom application on a computer before class. You will receive information on how to login to class and Zoom link with your registration.
