Ever since I moved out to our property, I’ve been working hard to learn a good deal about the botanicals I share this forested cove with. While I’ve come to identify a fair amount these past 6 years, there’s still a world of green information I’m aching to learn. From tree identification to animal tracks, mushrooms to bird calls, I want to learn it all. More than anything, though, I want to continue educating myself about the edible wild plants that populate our land.
Which is why I am over the moon with excitement to share with you some incredible news today. On Sunday, May 5th, we’ll be hosting a wild foods walk, talk, and eat here in the cove. Woot! Keri Evjy, skilled herbalist and permaculture educator of both Healing Roots Design and Herban Farmacy, will be leading us on a walk through the trails surrounding our home. She’ll share information along the way about what we discover, we’ll gather some edibles en route, and then we’ll return back to the house for a meal and to continue the conversation.
I do hope some of you are able to make it. A few weeks ago, Keri and I walked the property in advance, so that she could get a sense of the land. Though it was cold and windy the day we struck out, and it wasn’t even yet spring, Keri skillfully identified a number of edibles that I’d never before noticed. This lady knows her subject through and through, and delivers the information to her audience with love, awe, and grace. You don’t want to miss this class!
