Teacher Training - Wild Food Traditions: Spring Greens

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

Embrace the Gifts of Spring

Edible greens including nettles, dandelion, chickweed,wild lettuces, salmonberry sprouts,violets, and big leaf maple blossoms are common in gardens, local fields, and forests. These nutritional superstars support our transition from winter into spring and promote vitality, clear vision, and attunement to our bodies and the land.

Workshop participants will receive a curriculum that includes plant identification skills, sustainable harvesting techniques, nutritional values, medicinal uses, preservation methods, and recipes. After a plant walk around the GRuB Farm, we will prepare and sample a feast of wild foods.

Bring outdoor gear, a notebook, and a basket or bag for harvesting.

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