June 8-10

June 8-10: Introduction to Plants and Ethnobotany.

This three day workshop with ethnobotanist Keith Williams and botanist Pierre Taschereau Ph.D., will introduce participants to the fascinating kingdom of plants.

Topics will include: basic field identification of the major plant families, plant ecology, invasive species, and ethnobotany (cultural uses of plants).

A three day hands-on botanical adventure, this workshop will help you answer burning questions such as: How can I tell the difference between introduced and native species? Which local plants can I eat? How can wild plants be harvested sustainably? Why do we have seasonal food cravings? How can I make bread without using industrial yeast? How did people dye cloth before industrial dyes were available?
