There is an abundance in nature of food and medicine. Finding edibles in your backyard is easier than you think. Would you like to make simple but effective herbal remedies in your own kitchen?
In this Introductory class, you will learn to easily and positively identify two common wild plants: Plantain and Wood Sorrel. You can confidentally harvest these plants and follow along to make a quick Bite Relief Remedy and a delicious Wild Vinaigrette for your salads.
During the class, we will discuss the why, how and when to forage. Even if you have a tiny backyard, you can forage!

"Omg! I just had a chance to do the first class! Wow! This is awesome, Anne-Marie Bilella! I had a lot of wood sorrel that I just covered with all the mulch I’ve been getting. I had no idea what that precious little weed was! I’m sure it’ll make its way back up through the 6” of wood chips. In the meantime, I’ll be foraging for more. My plantain is my favorite ‘weed’. Great job! I’m so proud of you."
