Survival Plant Identification and Use Class
We had a great class on Wednesday, March 20th at Hawthorn Nature Center. Nearly 20 people came to hear about plants that can sustain them in a survival situation. There was a wide age range which was great to see. In addition to talking about survival plants, the class also learned how to make cordage from a variety of plant materials and how to make a healing salve using plants they learned about which contain chemicals that are known to assist in the healing of wounds and keep them clean. Many thanks to the Hawthorn Nature Center staff who stayed to participate in the class and assisted facilitating the hands-on portion of the class. I have one more class scheduled there next week for cattail basket making and it looks like it will be another full class!
