We break for lunch (not provided) midday for about 45 minutes, then continue our day with other lessons, activities, and nature-based meditations.  While we spend the entire day outdoors, we aren't moving the entire time.  We can accommodate all levels of physical activity.  A light snack and hot herbal tea made from wild in-season plants are always provided.

We'll spend our time in the kitchen processing and creating simple medicines such as salves, lotions, tinctures, syrups, and teas.  We'll also learn how to made a medicinal mushroom extract. We will break for lunch (not provided) midday for about 40 minutes, then continue our day with an urban foraging and plant identification walk followed by more time in the kitchen.  Lights snacks and herbal tea made from seasonal wild plants are always provided.  At the end of our time together, we'll get to sample some of the things we prepared in the kitchen!
