Spring Edible and Medicinal Plants Intensive (4 part series)

Port Gamble Heritage Forest Park • S Teekalet Ave KingstonWA  98346 Organized by WildWise

About this event

This workshop is a 4-part continuous series, with the dates as follows: March 16, 2024 April 20, 2024 May 11, 2024 June 1, 2024 There is a secret garden full of nutrition and medicine right in the native forests of your own backyard! Knowing how to harvest and prepare them is truly a gift to yourself and your family. Native wild plants are some of the most nutrient dense foods you can obtain, and best of all, they’re free! This hands on experiential intensive is more advanced than our Spring Wild Edible Workshop and will follow Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Pacific Northwest Temperate Rain Forest through the entire spring season as they make their appearance. By following the plants through the spring in four separate classes, we are able to cover each plant more intimately, rather than trying to introduce everything in a single weekend. You will go home with the working knowledge of: -Plant Identification and basic botany -How to ethically and safely Forage, Prepare and Eat wild plants for both everyday culinary use and wilderness survival -An introduction to local Medicinal Plants as well as how to create Salves, Tinctures, Teas, Vinegars, Decoctions, and more! -Curriculum covers Natural History, Ethnobotany, Lore, and Practical Application complete with Recipes and Potlucks.
