6/8/19 Foraging and Feasting {SOLD OUT}




{SOLD OUT} Email us to be placed on the waiting list at highgardentea@gmail.com

Join us for a day spent uncovering all the tasty and healthy treats growing right outside your door… or at least nearby! This class will be spent outdoors working on plant identification skills and meeting our local plants.  We will be spending time creating relationship with these herbs, gathering them, and learning their incredible stories and benefits for us and their ecosystem.

We will then take the fun indoors and create culinary treasures using what we have gathered and learned about on our walk.  We will learn how to prepare the herbs in order to use them fresh or dried. We will then make herbal vinegars, oxymels, teas, and yummy side dishes to enjoy as a group.  The food we will be preparing will be easy to incorporate into your daily life, and will be so worth the bit of effort for the benefits of incredibly healthy, fully vital food as well as ancient medicine.  This won’t be a restaurant style meal, but rather, ways to easily incorporate wild foods into everyday dishes. After this class, you will be as likely to reach for dried nettles or mulberry leaf as you are for the rosemary or thyme.

Bites and nibbles will be enjoyed by all and you’ll go home with a packet of seeds of Stinging Nettles to start your own wild edibles garden!
