In light of its ethics of holism and community, MuseumEats has expanded its focus beyond food collection and recruited some talented and inspiring facilitators for a Wildcrafting Weekend Intensive from April 29-May 1. This weekend will not only include education about what/how/why to pick wild foods, but will also touch on Weaving with Native and Foraged Materials, Plant-Spirit Medicine, Aromatherapy, and Wild Dynamic Permaculture.

Workshop Schedule:
April 29 – Aroma Blending for Mother’s Day
April 30 – Wild Weaving
May 1 – Plant Spirit Medicine & Food Collection
May 1 – Intro to Wild Dynamic Permaculture

Under the guidance of Camille Flanjak, Bea Edelstein, Kelly Ablard, and Lori Snyder, we’ll be identifying and collecting wild mushrooms, greens, shoots, and bushes for food, craft, and medicine, and learning how the integration of people into natural wild systems is more efficient than mono-crop agriculture.

Join us for an awesome and intense weekend of wildness!
