About the Event
Nature reveals a different path in Autumn and beckons us to explore further on. Learn about rosehips, autumn olive, pine, and turkey tail mushrooms, and how to prepare these and other seasonal finds. Taste a yummy wild snack. We will spend a portion of this class creating simple ceremonies which can be brought into wildcrafting practices to acknowledge the land and medicine plants.
