$90 Couples Discount: (any two people count as a couple, even if you don’t knock boots wink wink): February 11th 10am to 5pm (Snow date Feb 25th)
We will meet at 9am and wander the grounds of the North American Bushcraft School until 1pm. We will identify and harvest many plants along the way.
After a lunch break (please bring your own lunch, water, snacks) we will sit together and discuss, in detail, the edible and medicinal uses of the plants we have found. We will include parts used, best time to harvest, and preparation techniques. Cooking techniques and recipes will be discussed for the edible plants. Kristen will bring prepared wild edible snacks for sampling.
Please bring a camera (your phone is fine), closed toe shoes for walking, clothing in layers for comfort, sunscreen and insect repellent. Kristen will have her botanical tick shield for sale if you need some. Bring a chair or blanket for sitting on for our afternoon session.

Medicine Chest: Preparing for Cold & Flu Season: TBD. The fight against viral infection starts with a healthy immune system. We will discuss foods, herbs and supplements that help keep us strong. There are many natural antiviral preparations that we can have on hand and ready if infection does occur. Food is also medicine- eating to fight infection.
