Family Friday, November 2017 (7-9PM): Community Potluck Gathering ~ Meet and eat with your community of extended family (open to the public)!  Bring a dish to share and your own plate, cup, and utensils.  We'll provide a wild-foraged dish to share and medicinal herbal teas, an intentional space to tune in, slow down, and engage in mindful and lively discussions.  Erica will lead a plant meditation using our "plant of the month" tincture or salve, which will be given to all students. We sometimes also have products available for sale and/or trade.

Foraging Saturday, November 2017 (9AM-4:30PM): Many of our plant allies evolved to inhabit two distinct environments simultaneously--above and below the Earth's surface.  Above, the air provides carbon dioxide and the energy of sunlight, whereas, below, the soil offers water and vital minerals. We'll focus on a variety of edible and medicinal roots and shoots that serve as the anchor and foundation of our plant teachers to help support and nourish the parts that live in our realm, the above ground world. 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.

Fusion Sunday, November 2017 (9:30AM-4PM): In the kitchen, we'll spend our time learning to how process and prepare roots and shoots for food, medicine, and as additions to drinks that we may already consume, such as coffee and tea.  We'll discuss the nutritional and medicinal qualities of the roots we collect, using roots as alternatives to sugar, and how to preserve the bounty that nature provides. 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!
