Edible Plants - May 7

The world around us is full of an incredible bounty of edible wild plants that are even more packed with nutrients then most domesticated crops. Plus, many of them are not just nutritious but really tasty too! It is only in our very recent history that human beings have largely stopped harvesting wild plants. This class will teach you all of the things you need to know to start your wildcrafting journey, including some common local edibles, wild plant harvesting and preparation, and recommended resources that will help you to continue your learning journey.

I have attended courses at ENWS for 4 years.  To call the classes "impactful" is a severe understatement.  They have been perspective altering.  To quote Thomas Henry Huxley:
"To a person uninstructed in natural history, his country or sea-side stroll is a walk through a gallery filled with wonderful works of art, nine-tenths of which have their faces turned to the wall. Teach him something of natural history, and you place in his hands a catalogue of those which are worth turning around."
Earth Native's classes are mostly outdoors, always interesting, and a great way to change your perspective.  As for me, it has granted me a catalogue (to reference the quote) that now permeates the way I perceive the natural world.  Instead of a city-boy with zero confidence in the wilderness, I now feel competent to the level of comfort in being part of nature.
I owe a lot to ENWS and will never be able to repay the debt. - JB
