This is the second immersive weekend devoted to teaching you how to see, identify and make use of common wild foods, particularly the morel mushrooms that bloom at this time of year. Not only will we discover our region's seasonal bounty, but we'll prepare improvised meals together and have plenty of time to enjoy Camp Earnest. During the weekend, we will hear from a number of visiting local experts on how to forage, cultivate, and prepare wild, feral and local foods in the beautiful setting of Camp Earnest.
We’ll forage for wild morel mushrooms, pine tips and nuts, watercress, stinging nettle and other greens. Then we’ll guide you through making tasty, beautiful dishes through creative adaptation of what we’ve found. The weekend will also include a talk by our local biodynamic farmer and mushroom grower Jordan Lowery of Dambacher Farms, who will explain how, and why to cultivate mushrooms and the best uses for them.
