Explore uses of native plants with renowned naturalist and geographer Briony Penn. From wild berries to cattails, learn how to identify and harvest native foods and to supplement farmed food with food from the wild. Discover how our forests and oceans were sustainable sources for everything from eating utensils, to rope, clothing, and natural dyes. Learn how to establish native plants in your own garden and help restore local biodiversity. During this workshop we will do identification, gathering, journaling and crafts within and around the forests, waterways, and wild areas of Foxglove Farm. Read full course description
