Eat Your Weedies -- NEW DATE

posted Aug 4, 2014, 12:10 PM by Bruce Pankratz   [ updated Aug 4, 2014, 12:11 PM ]
Build your confidence and competence in identifying, gathering, and eating
wild food with experienced instructor, Joan Jacobowski! A Wild Edible
Workshop will be held at Namekagon Barrens Wildlife Area, Tuesday, August
12, 2014 from 9:00 AM – Noon.
Join us to explore the world of edible wild plants! We'll take a little hike to
see what we can find and bring it back to the clubhouse to cook up a
sampling! Emphasis will be on safety: positive identification, poisonous
look-alikes and environmental hazards. We'll also discuss harvesting sustainably.
Joan will also bring some preserved favorites for you to try.
Joan Jacobowski teaches Art at HACIL Charter School in Hayward, Wisconsin.
In summer she works for the National Park Service as an Interpretive
Park Ranger on the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. Plants and Ethnobotany
have been her lifelong passion.
