Thanks for the workshop yesterday. Going into it I had a little resistance, thinking "has it really come to this that we have to grub for our food?" - kind of a hopeless thought of where the world is headed. And, without doubt, it is a survival skill for difficult times or events. But, I felt much better afterwards. It was like a meditation and as someone commented, gave a sense of the bounty of the earth. I tend to have a defined sense of what's appropriate to eat: from the grocery store or at least from a cultivated garden! But now I have a new perspective on all those wonderful weeds (which I may now call nature's bounty). ---Margie

Garlic Mustard is a local invasive species that damages ecosystems and overtakes native plants. It is also very tasty and nutritious! Learn to forage for this nuisance weed, and how to prepare it for a delicious meal. Participants will get their hands dirty foraging and then come together to prepare a light repast of simple and flavorful recipes and to discuss the spirituality of eating invasive plants. Led by Rabbi Katy Allen of One Earth and Paige Dolci of SVT.
