Wild Food and Folk Medicine Through the Seasons

wintergreen

This series of Foraging classes will bring us through most of the growing season for many of the plants we will be learning about. This will help you feel more confident in your identification skills, as plants can look very different as they grow from seedling to maturity.

Watch how these delicious, nutritious and medicinal plants change through the seasons, and learn how their food and medicine change, too.
Most classes will be held at my home near Centuria, Wisconsin, and for some classes we will ‘road-trip’ to nearby locations.
This is a hands-on class – each session will include time outside identifying and harvesting wild edible and medicinal plants, then we will head inside and prepare food and/or folk medicine.
All classes will be held Rain or Shine, except during severe weather. Dress for the conditions and bring drinking water, bug spray, and a basket for harvesting.
