Description

Wild berries thrive in our woods, fields and back alleys. Lucky for us, these delicious foods are also powerful medicine. Herbalist Elise Krohn will share some of the rich cultural traditions and plant teachings surrounding berries including salal, huckleberry, blackberry, wild strawberry and black capped raspberry. We will prepare and sample berry tea, wild berry crisp, fruit leather, and a berry infused vinegar. Participants will bring home tea, vinegar and a handout with recipes.
