Wild Harvest: Summer’s Bounty 8/29


An experience in gourmet wild cuisine



Abundant food is growing around us for free in the wild! All we have to do is learn how to use it. This hands-on series covers wild food harvesting, processing, and cuisine. Gain hands-on experiences gathering and enjoying food from the wild. The first half of each class will focus on identifying and harvesting plants and the second half will focus on processing the wild materials into high end culinary delights. Anyone can talk about wild foods but true learning comes through direct experience. These intensives pick up where other plant walks leave off. They are highly recommended for anyone who is interested in understanding harvesting or preparing wild edible foods through personal, hands-on experience. Find out how you can bring home the best of each season.  A gourmet meal is included at the end of class.
