Fall Edible and Medicinal Plants Intensive – a 2-part series

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 Fall Wild Edible Workshop and will follow Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Pacific Northwest Temperate Rain Forest in the Fall season as they make their appearance. By following the plants into the Fall in two separate workshops, 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 Pot Lucks.

Taught by Outdoor Educators Natalia Brightwood and Aidoneus Bishop.
