Wild Food Traditions: Spring Greens

Embrace the gifts of spring! Taste edible greens including nettles, dandelion, chickweed, wild lettuces, salmonberry sprouts, violets, and big leaf maple blossoms. These nutritional superstars support our transition from winter into spring and promote vitality and attunement to the land. 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. Participants will receive a curriculum that includes plant identification tips, sustainable harvesting techniques, nutritional values, medicinal uses, and recipes. We will prepare a lunch together and provide light snacks, coffee and tea. Taught by members of the Tend, Gather and Grow team.

Limit 18 participants.

Registration closes March 24, 2023.
