Wild Foraging as a Lifeway Class Series 2021// Five Class Package
Join foragers Becky Beyer and Corby Hilscher at the lovely Hawk and Hawthorne for 5 three hour socially distanced plant and mushroom walks from the bioregional and subsistence living perspective. Come for one, two or all five! Identify, gather and learn how to plan for cooking and storage of many of the abundant, non-threatened plant and mushrooms species of this incredibly rich bioregion.
Rain or shine so bring a raincoat We will cover what foods are widely available and cover invasives, non-natives, sustainable and ethical foraging in Appalachia. We'll also tap into regional history and our favorite recipes. We will focus on the folklore and some medicinal and brewing uses of the herbs, roots and barks we encounter as well.
In Fall we'll meet locally available mushrooms and cover what plants and trees can be used for fuel, fiber and craft. Our hope is to share our everyday life with you and show you the richness of this special place we dwell in.
These will be taught masked and socially distanced.
