Stalking the Summer Harvest

Ages 4-12
The fields, forests, and hills are bursting with nature's bounty

The fields, forests, and hills are bursting with nature’s bounty! Come exploring with us as we gather wild greens and berries. Returning from our harvest we will learn to make delicious jams and other wild foods creations. Instructors will focus on how to safely identify wild plants and practice safe and sustainable harvesting. Eat to your heart’s content and become a caretaker and steward of our environment. All campers will bring home jars of jam for their families.

Students will:
Harvest berries
Make jam to take home
Learn to safely identify wild edible plants (and eat them!)
Use wild medicinal herbs safely (and learn the principles of wildcrafting)
Make hand-cranked ice cream
6-12 year old groups will go fishing (rods and reels provided)
Everyone will explore the wilds of Mount Pisgah Arboretum!
