Stinging Nettles for Food and Craft Skills Series

Saturday, February 25, 2017, 03:00pm - 05:00pm
 

We would like to invite you to this month's Rewilding Skill Series. The Rewilding Free Skills Series is a class & networking event that happens monthly, that usually occurs on the last Saturday of the month. It is a place for social networking where people make new friends and hang out with old friends learning skills to connect us with humanity’s ancestral past and more local and sustainable future. We ask for a $10 – $20 suggested donation with no one turned away.

This month's theme is Stinging Nettle for Food & Craft. In late winter and early spring, nettles and many other edible greens begin to emerge. Let's celebrate them by learning about them, how to encourage their growth, what roles they play in ecology, how to process and prepare them, and of course, how to eat them and what nutritional value they bring! We'll also talk about using stinging nettle to make cordage and nets (it's namesake comes from the plant fibers use as a "net"). Come to learn and share what you know. Find us at Picnic Area F, furthest parking lot, on the bike path just passed the bathrooms on the Columbia River side.
