Sunday 12/9/18, 10AM-5PM

Teacher Training - Evergreen Conifers: The Gifts of N.W. Trees

Join the 'Tend, Gather, & Grow' Community of Teachers!

We live amidst vibrant communities of cedar, fir, hemlock, pine and spruce. These trees hold rich cultural traditions and teachings. They also play a powerful role in our environment, shaping the weather and the plant communities beneath them.

In this interactive workshop, participants will gain skills in tree identification and explore their uses for food, medicine and traditional technologies. We will make respiratory steams, forest bathing salts, tree lip balm and more.

Participants receive a curriculum that is adaptable for kindergarteners through adults with lesson plans, stories, an identification key, tree matching cards and recipes.

Taught by Elise Krohn, GRuB's Director of Traditional Plant Programs.

Early Bird ticket rate is $100 through 11/18/18.

Price goes up to $125 on 11/19/18.  

Pre-registration is required: REGISTER HERE or call 360-753-5522.
