(PLANT)FLUENCED

a seasonal series of wild plant walks for ecological fluency

Join me for a series of seasonal plant walks in the Snoqualmie Valley. 

 

We will learn about wild plants by the elemental conditions they respond to from the earth: WATER, FIRE + WOOD. 

 

On each walk, we will use all our senses to learn basic plant ID, ethnobotany and concepts of ecological design and succession. We will build intimacy with a seasonal selection of Pacific Northwest plants and explore how they interact with wildlife, humans, and fungi (i.e. as food, craft, medicine, shelter, etc). We will also grow our observation skills to help us orient to any landscape.

dates + time: 6 plant walks

sept 19, 26 + oct 17, 24, 30 + nov 7  @ 4-6pm

where: various locations in the Snoqualmie Valley, WA
