Dan will share his knowledge and wisdoms on the often overlooked “wall of green” plants that surrounds us. Learn to identify some edible, herbal, and medicinal plants, often mistaken for mere weeds. Dan will discuss some traditional methods of treating ailments with homemade herbal remedies as well as the preparation of and nutritional benefits of wild foods that can be found growing naturally, and often abundantly, in our area.

Learn how you can participate in building a resilient, local food system, free of chemicals and GMO’s while enjoying locally grown veggies and fruits.
