young man forages native plants

Fruits and flowers everywhere, but not a bite to eat? Indigenous peoples and those historically living off the land were tuned in to how native flora can nurture us. Reconnect with the land by learning foraging skills and how to ID native plants that are safe for your plate, such as prickly pear and Texas persimmon.

This class is offered Sundays, September 20 and October 11, 9 a.m. – noon

This class will be held virtually! Participants who are registered will receive a link to the Zoom event by prior to the event. We keep our virtual classes small to offer plenty of opportunities to interact with our expert insructors.
