Do you recognize or have relationships with any plants that grow around us? In this Community Guild we will investigate micro-local seasonal wild foods: ways to recognize, harvest, enjoy, and preserve these gifts for ourselves and others. We’ll share the foragers ethical code, which means we’ll also take care and nurture: giving back to the land.
In building relationships with local wild plants we deepen our awareness of place and grow our sense of belonging. How will we be transformed as we pay deep attention to change, ripeness, and summer’s perfect offerings? Plant foods, teas, berries, fruits, roots, seeds, nuts.
This group aims to build human connections as well. As we are each comfortable we will take turns sharing our investigations creatively with the group at bi-weekly sessions. Drawings, photographs, stories, researches, tasty treats… we’ll learn from the work and inspiration of others.
I believe we are each drawn to certain plants because they are our teachers, and they want us to pay attention. My current passion and research area is local plants as food and medicine, with a newly realized focus on non-native plants. There are so many! I’ve been paying attention and plant-foraging here for a long time and I feed my family in this way. I am excited to share my projects and processes as a way to give you ideas about how to proceed, as well to share resources, and to learn together. Sara Ross
