Eating weeds (it’s not what you think)

Brett harvesting wild lettuceWild foods chef Brett Mayette will come back to Listening Tree this summer to show how to ethically wildcraft and cook the abundant wild foods to be found in our gardens. Join us to learn how to harvest before you weed and how to prepare those delicious weeds for dinner.

Brett is an amazing chef, and his favorite ingredients are of the wild and freshly foraged variety. Conscious Cuisine, based in Rhode Island, is Brett’s “evolutionary nutrition” company and its focus is to help people develop diversity in their diets and enjoy wild foods for better health.

Brett will be taking us on a walk through the fields and forests here at Listening Tree, and he will help us identify the nutritious plants, teach us about them, and show us how to harvest them. Then we will all gather as he prepares a meal for us- using the plants we just harvested.

Class will start at noon, and including our walk, plant harvest and meal, will wrap up at 3pm.

It will be a fun and informative class, with a delicious meal, and your own harvest to bring home for only $20. Hope you can join us. Registration is now open here.
