06.10.18 // Edible + Medicinal Wild Food with Danielle Eavenson // 5:30-7:30pm
Dandelions grow through sidewalks! Day lilies provide a lively ground cover, returning with vitality year after year despite adversity. Burdock digs deep, rooting down and drawing strength from the earth. When we bring these wild foods into our beings, we too become stronger and more adapt to challenge. Since the beginning of time, humans have relied on the wild for sustenance. Join us for an interactive class, wherein we will reconnect to our ancient birth rite by learning to identify, harvest and utilize the edible, medicinal plants growing all around us! These common place plants, pesky to some but beloved by herbalists, boast a bounty of medicine. We will learn about the abundant nutrition available in wild food as we explore tinctures, vinegars, salves, poultices, and tea. I will also bring tasty treats I have created from locally harvested “weeds" for us to share! You will leave class equipped with knowledge to make medicine with the plants in your yard and host a wild foods feast!
