Wild Fruits Rendezvous
with Green University instructors and friends | Hells Canyon, Idaho / Oregon
The Wild Fruits Rendezvous is an opportunity to stuff the belly and stock the cellar with delicious feral apricots, plums, blackberries, and mulberries. This is not a class, but rather a time to come together, collect wild foods, and process them to enjoy throughout the coming year. Bring along some portable canning equipment to cook jams, jellies, and canned fruits for the cellar. Inspired by adventures during a past Botany and Foraging Intensive, we are returning to camp, cook, canoe, and feast!
The Wild Fruits Rendezvous is a small gathering, open to friends and family members and Green University students. Others wishing to participate, please send us a note to share a little about yourself, and what skills, knowledge, experience, or equipment you can contribute to the tribal experience.
Interested in more classes and events?
See our full schedule!
I hope you are doing well and enjoying all the abundance of summer.
Thank you once again for accommodating us at Hells Canyon. We all had a wonderful time. I think Sara caught the foraging bug. She says she can't get the trip out of her mind! Sara is paying extra attention while reading Shanleya's Quest to learn the plant families. Willow is super enthusiastic about reading it again and again since she met you. That is really exciting for me particularly because it is so important that Willow has a good understanding of the natural world and the magic of interacting within it.
We have plans to harvest and preserve plums, pears, huckleberries, apples, and cherries from our area in the coming weeks. We are highly interested in the wild rice harvest in St Maries. (I need to get started on making our knocking sticks real soon.)
I am really enjoying Foraging the Mountain West, the writing style makes for easy reading. I like the casual conversation and stories surrounding the plants. I will read it cover to cover. My compliments to the authors!
Bryan, Sara, and Willow
