Please notify the continuing education office if you have physical restrictions limiting your ability to walk on uneven terrain. This course takes place on the Bastyr campus grounds and forested trails.
Saturday morning will be spent digging roots, harvesting plants, and preparing them for meals. We will have an amazing day of plant walks and harvesting along the Bastyr wooded trails and garden, harvesting, and preparing plants to make herbal vinegars, plant infused honeys, cordials, and more.
Sunday will be a delightful morning in the kitchen making wild greens pesto, herbal infused truffles, a main dish, and roasted dandelion roots. Demonstrations and hands-on activities preparing everyday meals with common plants that students can easily find and pick themselves with lots of options for preferences and allergies. Of course, students will have the opportunity to sample everything. No one will go home hungry!
Both days will include many options to answer the question "what do we do with the remedies we make?" Students will take home recipes and memories of a fantastic weekend of plants, food, and fun!
