Sustainable Foraging 101
Learn about how to tend and steward our wild spaces while foraging.
If you are new to foraging and want to learn how to be a steward of the places you harvest, I designed this class for you. As foraging gets more popular, it becomes more and more important that we learn to care for the places that we harvest so they continue to be healthy and thrive. It is also important to know which plants need extra vigilance from us, and which plants we should avoid harvesting altogether.
Topics will include:
-at risk plants in WA
-how to decide whether to harvest and how much
-harvesting practices that prevent damage and disease
-plant medicine salvage
-invasive weed medicines
-intro to legalities of harvesting in WA
This will be an online event held on zoom. This class is adapted for residents of the pacific northwest (WA, OR, BC), but feel free to join us from anywhere!
-DATE: September 22, 2020
-TIME: 6:30pm-8:30pm PST
-COST: $30 per person.
TEACHER: This class will be taught by me: Natalie Hammerquist. I was born and raised in the Seattle area, and have been foraging in the pacific northwest for 11 years. Herbalism is the primary lens from which I come to plants, but I also forage wild edibles, tend a garden, and make art from foraged things. My training is in field plant taxonomy and western folk herbalism. I have been teaching full time about herbalism and foraging for 4 years at my school, The Adiantum School of Plant Medicine. My students would agree that I am a quirky and authentic educator who values radical self acceptance, reciprocity in nature, and latin names for things. Ethics and stewardship are always at the root of my teaching. My inner nerd is excited to be acquainted with your inner nerd!
