Level 2 Foragers: Advanced Land Stewardship & Reciprocity SOLD OUT

February 28 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

$400.00
.

In Level 1, Foragers were exposed to a wide variety of plants and skills and began to build the concept of reciprocity. In Level 2 we will take those lessons and put them into action by designing and stewarding a Foragers Patch that will ground us in our ecosystem and the complex relationships within it. Each month we will still continue to learn new skills and plants, welcome guest teachers and go on field trips, while always coming back to our Patch to practice the responsibility of stewardship as a group.

If you have at least 1 year of foraging experience, or if you have already taken Fox Haven Foragers Level 1– this level 2 foraging series is meant to help you tighten your skills and deepen your direct relationship with the ecosystem you are in. Monthly meetings will be on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 9am-1 pm February through November. We will also have three Zoom conversation classes throughout the season. Those dates will be February 24th, May 26th and October 29th from 7:30-8:30 pm.

Mycoremediation and Forest Inoculation

Pruning for Tree Health and Bark Harvest

Collecting and Processing Nuts, Flowers and Seeds for Flour
