Food and Medicine in the Field and Forest
Spring: May 22, 23 and 24, 2015 (Friday evening 6pm-Sunday 4pm)
Fall: October 2,3 and 4, 2015 (Friday evening 6pm-Sunday 4pm)
Join us for one or both weekends! Both will be seasonally focused, so each weekend will offer a unique experience.
These programs are open to both men and women!
Join Linda Conroy and John Holzwart for these inspiring weekend immersions in the wild plant world. Participants will learn to forage for food and medicine of each season. We will learn approaches to storing plants for later use as well as plant identification, ethical wildcrafting, techniques for harvesting, processing and more! The focus of each session will be on what is available during that particular season. We will prepare whole and wild food meals together as part of the hands on learning experience. We encourage participation in both sessions for a comprehensive learning experience.
Weekend includes instruction, supplies, handouts with recipes, whole and wild food meals, camping or indoor lodging and much more!
This program takes place at the Windhorse Retreat Center in Plymouth, WI. The center is located in a beautiful glacial area adjacent to the 15,000 acre Kettle Moraine State Forest. The Kettle Moraine State Forest is in southeastern Wisconsin, USA. The chief feature of the reserve is the Kettle Moraine, a highly glaciated area. The area contains very hilly terrain and glacial landforms, such as kettles, kames and eskers. This forest offers a vast opportunity for exploring the natural world!
“A huge thank you to John & Linda for your kindness and wisdom. I came with the intention of learning wild foods… and left with so, so much more.” Megan Kerkoff, Fall 2014 Wild Plant Series Participant
