August 31st, 2019 PawPaw Paradise Propagation and Advanced Foraging Adventure with Abby and Doug - Register Here, Petersburg, KY Foraging food and herbs can be daunting. Education can cure overwhelm! We’ve gone plant walking before, but this is your chance to go deeper in. Dive deeper into botany to grasp a better understanding of plant identification. See demonstrations of correctly, safely, and ethically harvesting them in the field. Learn real world tips for processing and preserving these precious treats for food and medicine. With more time for adventuring into the forest, we’ll forge a stronger connection to each plant, making identification easier and creating experiences to burn them into our brain. Bring your questions, field guides, notebooks, and cameras, along with hiking boots, rain jackets, and water bottles. Abby will have her book, the Herbal Handbook for Homesteaders and her wildcrafted Appalachian herbal products for sale after class and during breaks. Register HERE!

A Botanic Folk School: We see a school based upon the principles of knowing and working with plants in the folkway: a return to the old lore of learning and making food and medicine. Where the way in which we craft our baskets is as important as the way we brew our tea. Kudzu and sweet birch. Violet and bittercress. Old is made new.
