ONLINE VIA ZOOM
Wild harvesting of plant material for food, medicine or craft can be a great way to interact with nature. However, care must be taken to ensure plants are harvested in a sustainable way that promotes that continued survival of wild populations. Through the lens of 5 commonly available wild plants this class will discuss plant usage and sustainable harvesting methodologies. We will also consider locations for harvesting, invasive species, and ecological impacts of human disturbance. Resources to support an ethical wild harvesting practice will be provided.
