Winter Forgaing Workshop – February 25th
February 25 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm$65.00
Foraged in Winter: Forest Medicines, Teas and Treats
Winter is not over yet!
Come out for an afternoon snowshoe and learn about our local plants that can be gathered in winter to make medicines, teas, and treats. Try some conifer needle teas that are high in Vitamin C and cookies that are infused with the flavor of the forest!
You will have a chance to gather some tree parts and other herbs to bring home for your pantry and medicine cabinet. You will be provided with How-To’s, recipes, and other information to help identify local wild plants/trees, their benefits, and how to process them into medicines, teas and treats.
This will be a 6 km round trip hike on an old logging road. Only a 15 minute drive from downtown Prince George! As we will be stepping off the road from time to time, it would be ideal to wear snowshoes.
This workshop will be weather dependent. If Jen @ Moose, Mushrooms and Mud decides to cancel because of bad/really cold weather, a full refund will be issued.
