Portland, Oregon Wild Edible and Medicinal Plants
For over 1 million years of human history humans have been feeding and tending to the health of their family by harvesting and living from a "Wilders" garden.
Learn to harvest and preserve the bounty of the wild with the experts of Trackers Earth. Hands-on activities help you develop vital identification skills while getting to know important local plants. The focus of this class is gathering for safety, sustainability and self-sufficiency. Start stocking your larder and setting the table with a little taste of the wild.
