I live in a region surrounded by natural fruits, nuts, and herbs that I use to create medicines such as skin salves and flu remedies; and yummy treats such as rose ice cream and creamy polenta with pine nuts. Many of them are grown on my own property; others are a short walk away. Join me to gather seasonal plants and create skin salve, a personal care product, and edible dish using wild and natural local ingredients. You'll also learn how pioneers or Native Americans used these plants. We will meet at my country property and gather some herbs here; then visit a local riverside park to gather and learn more.

Là où vous les emmènerez
My private property is in a rural area, featuring "plants with a purpose" both wild and semi-domesticated. We will also visit the site of a Native American village that has not been marked as such on maps, but contains acorn grinding rocks and plants used by the earliest settlers in this valley.
