Embrace the gifts of spring and summer! Taste edible greens including nettles, dandelion, chickweed, wild lettuces, salmonberry sprouts, violets, and big leaf maple blossoms. These nutritional superstars promote vitality and attunement to the land. We will also learn to identify eight native berries and go through berry lessons for different ages including a slideshow, identification games, berry bingo, art activities, Salish stories, 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. Participants will receive a curriculum that includes plant identification tips, sustainable harvesting techniques, nutritional values, medicinal uses, and recipes.
