In this class series you will learn to forage and wildcraft while learning fun stories of the plants!
Plant Class is designed to appeal to all your senses! We will take a walk around the farm to forage for what is growing and use it to create some magic. The activity chosen is dependent on the Plant of the Month and could include tea-making, drying, dyeing, pressing and more.
