We invite you to join us for Mother's day learning about cultivated and wild plants for salad, smoothies, chips, breads, and other delicious and nutritious foods. For the entire day and two meals, meet us at 10 am at the West Rd. Exit 557 off US 101 near the bus stop on the east side of the highway. The cost is on a sliding scale from $75 to $150 for the day ending at 7 pm. For the afternoon, meet at 12:45 pm at the same location. The afternoon only cost is $30-$60, and please add $15 if you want to stay for the dinner.
The class includes detailed lists and charts on many properties of over 50 salad and smoothie plants. Medicinal properties, growing information, flavor profiles, bloom and harvest months for inland and coastal northern CA, and more are included. Gentle movement will help get you open to what the plants offer, and be receptive to much information. After discussing the plant that calls each participant, we will explore more plants and then gather some to prepare chips, smoothies, bread, and salad. These foods will be part of the dinner. As part of the class, we will also review how Floodgate Farm works with water, soil, and plant succession management (integrating wild and cultivated plants) to produce the most food with the least effort. To register, please send a check made out to Bill Taylor to P.O. Box 848, Ukiah, CA 95482 or bring check or cash to the meeting place, or send funds to Jaye via https:/www.paypal.me/jmoscariello.
