Egypt, Greece, Rome, from Thomas Jefferson to I. M. Pei, humanity’s history has been chock full of extraordinary architects and architecture. We, however, were not the first to erect monumental structures! While humans had yet to emerge from caves, many animals were going gangbusters impressing mates with their own monuments! Meet some incredible builders in this one-hour picture presentation celebrating the glory of human and animal architecture.

We all know that locally grown organic food is what is best for us. No unwanted chemicals, more healthy nutrients, less wasteful byproducts of large scale farming and long distance transportation. Having your own garden is even better of course.

What about wild plants? They’re right there, some in great abundance. Some non-native species are in too much abundance, out competing their native neighbors. Many of these we can eat and it is becoming quite well documented that they are better for us, containing higher and more complete amounts of the nutrients we need to be healthy within the same volume of food.

The Forest Wolf, Andy Dobos, will help you learn some common, easily identifiable edible wild plants and how to responsibly harvest and prepare them. We will walk through field, forest and wetland edge, all almost within sight of each other.

We have special permission to pick plants on WMCC property, something that is not normally allowed, which gives us an incredible opportunity to do this in a most beautiful setting. All the plants we cover will be species one could find in their back yard or old farmland or wood lot, so no excuses for not making future use of what you will learn.
