Eat Your Weedies -- NEW DATE

Post date: Aug 4, 2014 7:10:14 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.
