It’s the perfect time to plant seeds of knowledge so we can collectively harvest an abundance of crops and drink from the power of nature. This comes from cultivated and foraged perennial food and herbs and healthy land stewardship solidifying your connection with nature through this advanced herbal day class. Immerse yourself in the forests, farmland, and wild and cultivated of Treasure Lake to learn tried and true tips and techniques from Doug and Abby for sustaining yourself on your own land and the wilds beyond.
The day will be a mosaic of plant walks, informational recap sessions, and hands on. It will further your skills of botany, wild plant identification, and permaculture land assessment so you can plant wisely and manage for your particular ecosystem and harvest the abundantly. Our foraging will help us with lunch prep all the while learning safe and ethical harvesting techniques. We will examine and practice how to cook and prepare these vitality-packed foods to make them delicious. Additionally, a combination of wild and cultivated herbal teas will be available. We will also get active through hands-on experience planting native shrubs and herbs including elderberry, a high Vitamin C herb and natural flu-fighter and superfood. Take this opportunity to also network with like-minded folks thus making regional connections. Abby will have her Appalachian foraged herbal products for sale, too, along with her brand new book, The Herbal Handbook for Homesteaders.
