Foraging for Edible Wild Plants... Free?

Haven't been able to confirm that this class is free but if it is it should be a good one.

Foraging for Edible Wild Plants, by Terry Domico.

Terry Domico will be speaking in Seattle on Thursday May 7th about foraging for edible wild plants. While having knowledge about wild edible plants has clear survival value, the day-to-day use of wild edible plants can be an important addition to our "domestic" diet. Terry has been using wild edible plants to spice up his meals for more than 45 years. According to Terry, the other big benefit of foraging for edible plants is that "you become much more aware of what's going on in the environment around you. You see the forest for the trees, so to speak." Terry plans on bringing fresh sample plants for everyone to examine.

Terry works in regional ecological assessment for the benefit of plant and animal habitat. He has published articles and photographs in nature magazines such as Natural History and Smithsonian, and has written several books including Wild Harvest: Grazing for Edible Plants of the Pacific Northwest and Natural Areas of the San Juan Islands.
