Spring Wild Foods Walk and Lunch

May 26, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 1:30 pm

Spring and early summer sees some of the first foods to arise in the garden and in the wild.  Walk with Marianne, an experienced herbalist and wildcrafter, to discover some of what nature has to offer.  Some of these foods will be incorporated into a delectable lunch, made by Louise.  Before we eat, though, there will be a short talk on the importance of bitters, with a tasting demonstration.  Learn to incorporate herbs and wild food into the every day experience. Attendees will also have an opportunity to purchase some of Marianne’s hand crafted herbal products.
