SPLENDID SUMMER TREE EXPLORATIONS

Thursdays 5:30-8:30pm, June 7th – 28th
all over Chatham County
DROP INS WELCOME with space!

Spend one or all four summer evenings getting to know our edible and medicinal trees as we wander in wonder through the beautiful woods and fields of Chatham county. In a fun, reverent, and accessible way, we’ll explore tree identification, safe and sustainable harvesting, as well as food and medicine preparation and uses. Add to your home apothecary as we create tree-inspired tinctures, teas, and delicious wild edible treats like black walnut pickles and elder flower elixir. 

Botany, plant meditation, cultural history, detailed handouts & recipes, and story-telling will enliven our experience and help us retain what we’ve learned as we practice really seeing and appreciating the beautiful, elaborate, simple, and fascinating details of trees.

I was blessed to grew up learning about trees on walks with my grandparents in the woods of Chatham County and look forward to sharing this arboreal adventure with you. Group size is limited. Save your space! Cost includes supplies for hands-on creations. Earlybird special through May 25th is $132; after it will be $156. Drop in for the day with advanced notice and space for $45/day (contact Kim at least 2 days ahead of class to find out class meeting location and pay). Payment plans and some scholarship funding available. Ages 14 years old and up are welcome. Participants need to be able to walk on uneven surfaces and inclines over several miles and we will meet outside in a wide range of weather.
