Wild foods are abundant in the winter and early spring season of the California landscape if you know what to look for. Local tribes including the Wappo, Pomo, and Coast Miwok have long held traditional ecological knowledge of these plants. In this class, you will learn from local herbalist Autumn Summers as she shares how to not only identify these highly nourishing wild foods, but also the important elements of sustainably and ethically harvesting them. You will discover new and enticing recipes with a range of ingredients, as well as the nutritional and wellness values these plants can add to your lifestyle. Discover how gathering, preparing, and utilizing foods and herbs from the wild can help you better understand the diversity of plant life around you and build a deeper relationship with your ecosystem.
This event includes an easy to moderate hike at a slow pace, covering up to 2 miles over varied terrain. It will go on in light rain. However, it could be canceled in the case of heavy storms or unhealthy air quality. In the case of cancellation, registered attendees will be notified via email.
