Plant Foraging Series: Horsetail

April 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join WRI for our Plant Foraging Series. We will be hosting plant foraging workshops to introduce people to the abundance of local plants and their edible, medicinal, and functional uses. Each workshop will feature a new plant at its unique harvest time. Participants will learn hands-on how to identify, harvest, propagate, and make use of the plant. Our goal is to empower people to respectfully and reciprocally engage with the plants that live here.

The featured plant for this workshop is horsetail, which is seen abundantly in our area near water. This is an ancient plant first appearing during the Jurassic period and has been used through time for practical and medicinal benefits.

Sarah Michels, the owner of Infuse Organics, will teach us about this plant from her medicinal herb farm in Leavenworth. The class is designed to instruct you on foraging and harvesting along with a few ways it can be used. This will be a hands-on class to become more familiar with this plant.

We will meet at Wenatchee River Institute and van/carpool to the Infuse Organics farm.
Registration required.
Space is limited, so sign up fast! Class size: 15
Cost is Pay What You Can. Choose a price that is reasonable for you. WRI offers this in recognition that not everyone can afford to pay for classes. We hope that people who can, will pay to help those you cannot.
