WINTER INTO SPRING TREE EXPLORATIONS

Sundays, 1-5pm

classes postponed…

Have fun getting to know our edible and medicinal trees starting with bare branches and buds then shifting to leaves and flowers! These three explorations span several months of potent change and growth for local trees. We will wander in wonder through the woods exploring tree ID, safe and sustainable harvesting, as well as food and medicine preparations. Add to your home apothecary as we create tree-inspired tinctures, teas, infused oils, and delicious wild edible treats!

I was blessed to grew up learning about trees on walks with my grandparents here in Chatham County and look forward to sharing this arboreal adventure with you. Hands on creations, botany, plant meditation, cultural history, and detailed handouts with recipes will support our practice of really seeing and appreciating the beautiful and fascinating details of trees. Group size is limited so reserve your space now! 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. There will be one make up date on April 26th in the unlikely event we need to reschedule due to dramatic weather.

Cost includes supplies! Enjoy the EARLYBIRD discount for ALL three classes for $150 through February 4th; $165 after. Drop in for the day with space and advanced registration for $60. Payment plans and some scholarship funding available.
