Event description

Description

Join ethnobotanist and clinical herbalist Hayden Stebbins for a walk through forest and field to see the world in a way you’ve never seen before!

During this walk, Hayden will teach you about common plants and mushrooms, how to identify them by family, and their edible, medicinal, or poisonous properties. You and the group will harvest edible plants as you go, and will bring them to a kitchen where a multi course meal will be prepared combining the harvest with regular food. This will include a wild plant pesto, hummus, salad, a couple teas and an extra dish depending on what plants and mushrooms are found. The class will run 3.5-4 hours. If you would like to take notes (there will be a lot of information shared), bring a notepad and pen. Wear appropriate clothing for a relaxed walk and weather, but most importantly, bring a big appetite and a curious mind!

*Sliding Scale Donation Requested, $35 - $50* Reserve your place and pay here (below), or to reserve your place and pay at the door, email outreach@weaversway.coop.

Hayden Stebbins graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelors of Science in Science of Natural and Environmental Systems and earned his Masters of Science from Schumacher College in England in Sustainable Horticulture and Food Production. He has since shadowed ethnobotanist Marc Williams (Director of botanyeveryday.com and Plants and Healers International) in Asheville, NC, teaching and learning about edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms up and down the eastern seaboard, and has completed the full-time clinical herbalism program at the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine.
