Plant Foraging Series: Fireweed

June 25 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

Join WRI for our Plant Foraging Series. We will be hosting plant foraging workshops to introduce people to the abundance of local plants and their edible, medicinal, and functional uses. Each workshop will feature a new plant at its unique harvest time. Participants will learn hands-on how to identify, harvest, propagate, and make use of the plant. Our goal is to empower people to respectfully and reciprocally engage with the plants that live here.

The plant we’re focusing on for this class grows in clearings, meadows, roadsides, and forest edges that have experienced fires or disturbances. This plant’s unique growing habitat and resilience lends to its name, Fireweed. It is an edible plant with both culinary and medicinal uses and is important for bees and hummingbirds. It is tall with magenta four-petaled blooms.

Registration required.
Space is limited, so sign up fast! Class size: 15
Cost is Pay What You Can. Choose a price that is reasonable for you. WRI offers this in recognition that not everyone can afford to pay for classes. We hope that people who can, will pay to help those you cannot.

Location: Wenatchee River Institute, 347 Division St. Leavenworth, WA
