Weekend Workshops (5/9-5/10)

Spring Quiche with Violet, Dandelion, and Plantain
So you've been learning all about how to identify your local edibles and how to harvest them, now it's time to put that knowledge to use!
Join me at Trout Lily Market in Fairview, NC for a hands-on workshop in preparing a meal incorporating some of our well known backyard wild edibles: aka the weeds.
The meal will be vegetarian (all but the main dish will be vegan) and gluten-free. After we create, we will then devour. Tea, coffee, and wine will be provided by Trout Lily.  
Cooking with Backyard Wild Edibles
May 9th, 1-3

Getting to know the plants up close and personal
If you feel like you want to get to know the plants in their natural environment before dicing, sautéing, and steaming...then join me at
The Villagers, a darling lil homesteading shop in West Asheville. The workshop will open with a slideshow presentation and discussion of 10 of our urban wild edible and medicinal plants, and then will hit the streets for an urban plant walk.
 Herbal tea and wild edible snacks will be provided during the presentation.
May 10th 5-7 pm
$15-25 sliding scale (children under 13 are free)
Hope to see you there!
