THE SUMMER 2017 WILDCRAFTING WORKSHOP SERIES
The summer in the PNW is subject to major climate change. Sometimes we face drought - others we have rain for weeks-on-end. Learn how to harvest regeneratively in the face of environmental stress, and how to collect and store quality wild foods and medicine with respect to ecology and social justice. Public Workshops run June - August. Stay tuned for more dates.
We will be observing and gently harvesting early summer mushrooms such as button chanterelles, several species of russula, and lobster mushrooms.

The bounty of autumn brings with it a plethora of mushrooms. Fungi are powerful not only as delicious morsels or medicines, but also as key players in the seasonal transition of the forest. Join us as we observe the fungal rainbow and get hands-on experience delicately harvesting fungi for personal use, and learn how we can encourage their regeneration.
