|Saturday, August 1st: 9am - 4pm|
Summer is the season of berries! Join us as we explore the diversity of berry plants growing in the Pacific Northwest and learn about their ethnobotanical uses.
You will learn:
- Botanical Identification
- Harvesting Ethics and Practices
- Processing Techniques
- Cordage & Use of Natural Fibers
- Natural Dyes
- Edible & Medicinal Uses of Plants
We will spend a day in the mindset of a forager; seeing a process through. From plant identification to ethical harvests and mindful processing, participants will go home with naturally processed rope, a drying screen, a naturally dyed harvest bag, fruit leather, berry infusions, and several berry recipes. This class is intended to deepen your experience and understanding of the multiple uses of berry plants in the Pacific Northwest. It will help increase your awareness of living with the seasons through a multifaceted relationship.
