About the Event
Fun activities will help us explore trails and rediscover what our modern minds may have forgotten about our plant relatives. Taste a wild snack, and collect recipes for preparing your harvests. Summer is a great time to identify plants with their full flowers and rich green supporting leaves. We will gather some flowers together and create ephemeral designs on the Earth, to hold space for Nature’s gifts and your inspired thoughts.
Bring a water bottle and tool of choice for harvesting a handful of herbs. Email us if mobility accommodations may be needed, as we may cover a good bit of ground during the class.
THINGS TO BRING
Please wear standard attire for hands-on, outdoor learning.
Sliding scale fee: $20 - $0, based upon your access to resources.
