This class is for everyone with a desire to learn more about native edibles. In this visual presentation, participants will learn what “native edible” means ecologically and culturally - including a brief contextual history, a review of a variety of native edible species, and basic design and planning considerations and resources for incorporating them into your landscape. This class provides general, introductory resources for identifying and foraging wild edibles. This class does not focus on high-water use, exotic, or other introduced food producing plants. Please share photos and any specific questions about native edibles (in your backyard or elsewhere) with the instructor prior to the class. If time allows the instructor may use these as highlighted examples during the class. Please note that not all submissions may be covered in time allotted.
