Foraging provides many avenues of connection with nature and fosters a greater appreciation of the many things that local landscapes can provide for us. 

Students should expect to spend much of the weekend outside identifying, collecting, and preparing wild plants for food (so be prepared for weather and uneven terrain).  

 

Class will focus on gathering plant foods and medicines that are appropriate for the season (nuts, legumes, fall roots and tubers, and wild rice--as available). 

Throughout the class, simple tools will be used and reference will be made to primitive and contemporary methods of processing plants.  As well, wildcrafted medicine and utilitarian plants will be discussed to provide a more holistic understanding of how plants can positively affect our lives. 

Wild nutrition is both a link to the past and a gateway to a sustainable future.

Arthur is an instructor with a gift for sharing knowledge in a way that engages students; supplying, sometimes advanced, information in a manner that is effortless to assimilate. A workshop or class with Arthur provides a well-articulated and uniquely holistic perspective on the role of plants in our lives, and our role in theirs.”

ORGANIC, LOCAL MEALS PROVIDED

Chef Frank Giglio will be cooking daily omnivorous breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for all of our students.

It has become increasingly clear through many independent studies that diets rich in wild foods promote health and defend the body from many of the debilitating ailments that plague modern societies (e.g., cancer, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, coronary disease, periodontal disease).

All food will be included and prepared by Chef Frank Giglio.  Expect local, wild, and/or organic food offerings from the four food kingdoms prepared in a traditional manner (i.e., a Weston Price-inspired menu).
