About the event
A weekend of foraging, crafting, and connecting with your wildness! Join author Briana Wiles and Kat Mackinnon, director of CSCH’s Rocky Mountain Field Botany course and ancestral skills teacher for this spring-time workshop.
Our workshop begins Friday night with an opening circle, talk and potluck that is free and open to the public! Come learn about the importance of connecting with our wild and naturalized foods. Bring your favorite dish to share (please label ingredients). We’ll also have a few wild foods available to taste!
On Saturday we’ll begin with exercises designed to drop you into the landscape and begin connecting with the plants. Throughout the day we’ll be foraging and preparing for the Saturday night wild foods feast, gathering together all the springtime wild treats (come prepared to get dirty-foraging). The feast itself will be hands on, with participants learning how to cook ash cakes and cattail, how to make a foraged soup using the rock boil method, and of course, make fantastic wild salads! Music, stories, and tea around the fire for dessert.
Sunday morning we’ll explore preserving your wild harvest, including techniques for making storage and gathering containers.
Come for the knowledge, stay for the food!
