This blog has been pretty quiet so far. I’ve been deep in creative and planning mode lately, because that’s what Winter in Wisconsin is all about, right?
- Creating some pocket cards to help you identify wild edibles – this is something I’ve been thinking about for awhile, and now I’ve finally gotten the first 10 cards ready to print. They will be available for sale sometime in January, and I’ll be adding more throughout the year.
- Planning future blog posts – gosh, did you know that you can write a bunch of blogs, then schedule them to post on certain days?! I really love that, and am taking full advantage of it, even though it sort of feels like cheating.
- Creating a Year-Long Wild Food and Folk Medicine Exploration. This series will include only 4 “In Person” classes. The rest of the classes will be via Skype or Zoom or something along those lines. I’m planning to start in June with a Beta version of this program with just a few participants who will be helping to create it. The cost will be half the amount of the fully-formed program. Let me know if you’d like more information about this unique opportunity.
- Planning foraging (and foraging related) classes for 2018 – I’ve got 34 classes on my schedule right now, and more in the works. From Pepin to Webster, and possibly into the Twin Cities. So if you want a class, there will be one for you to take! 🙂
- Creating teas and tinctures to keep my family healthy this winter. Right now I am drinking a tea that Dr Tieraona LowDog suggests for colds and congestion. It is simply thyme (the kind you grow in your garden) with a splash of lemon juice and a bit of honey. I like to steep the thyme extra long, and add a bit of mullein to it, too. It works well to loosen phlegm and break up congestion.
- Planning for a great 2018. I hope to see you out there.
