Foraging Food, Medicine & Folklore Workshop

The ability to identify the plants that grow all around us is quickly becoming a lost art. Keep the tradition alive and spend the day learning to identify those plants that you subconsciously see every day. You might be surprised to learn that these very plants are a valuable source of nutrition or medicine! After a walk through the beautiful Kings Landing Settlement, we will sit back and sip a ‘wild tea’ from a variety of plants we have collected. This course is being offered in both July and August, and the plants discussed will depend on what is in season so they may be two very different walks!

MATERIAL COST: $0.00

Instructor – Adam Weaver

Adam is a wild plant and fungi enthusiast. Having spent over a decade studying the nutritional and medicinal benefits of nature’s bounty, Adam is excited to share his knowledge through interactive ‘wild edible walks’, walking through undetermined locations to discuss known benefits, folklore, history and foraging ethics.
