2018 Edible Wild Plants Certificate Course

Taking a walk in the woods, or even around your neighborhood, takes on a whole new meaning when your intention is to forage. There is a transformation in how you look at the environment when the landscape is no longer just window dressing, but a source of nourishment. Now the tree that you have passed by hundreds of times with barely a glance becomes meaningful – you notice it and eagerly await its fruit.

Knowing what plants to look for when, finding them around you, then knowing what to harvest, how to process and prepare it, takes some practice, but Pat Armstrong will teach you all of this in our Edible Wild Plants Certificate course. Over the course of 10 months you’ll learn 200 edible wild plants that grow in our bioregion through classroom and home study, plant walks, and by eating and preparing recipes with them every class!

Students will receive an Edible Wild Plants Recipe book containing all of the recipes prepared by the instructor and students throughout the course, plus a printed certificate recognizing their accomplishment.

Cost $750
