Join Frank Grindrod of Earthwork Programs and Lenore Anderson of Natural Vitality for this unique experience and come away with skills in correct identification of wild edibles and medicines you can find right outside your back door.

Lenore Anderson, M.A. Educator, Holistic Health Coach and Practitioner, Licensed Massage Therapist, Acupressurist and Clinical Herbalist, will work with Frank Grindrod on this Workshop.

THIS MONTH’S FOCUS: Roots! And in combination with the Primitive Cooking & Making Medicine Workshop (WS 3), learn how to ethically harvest wild cherry bark, easily peel the inner bark and make medicinal syrup for dry hacking coughs and many other health conditions.

You will learn how and when to harvest by season and in what habitat to seek out your favorite wild edibles. Additionally you will learn how to harvest with intention; keeping in mind the importance of the responsibility we have as foragers and earth stewards.

A responsible, attentive forager always finds a meal!
