Wild Edibles Walk With a Permaculture Focus 9/14 2-5pm
This course will be held at Middle Creek Farm in Myersville, MD. Eric Joseph Lewis is a highly knowledgeable naturalist, who is enthusiastic about wild foods, mushrooms, and creating new reciprocal paradigms of how we interact with other beings.

-The simplest strategies for getting to know plants
-How to correctly identify plants and mushrooms and how to rule out poisonous look a-likes
-The top wild staple foods in the area
-How to gather enough calories in a day to last a month
-How to harvest sustainably and promote wild edibles with guerrilla planting tactics
