Preparing Teas and Desserts with Native Edibles.
During this class, Nadia will describe some of the native edibles that she has used previously for Dining Wild events at Lincoln University and at home. She will provide information about when and what part of the plant to harvest and will share recipes of some selected beverages and desserts.
The master class, to be held via Zoom, will include 50 minutes of instruction with at least 10 minutes for a question and answer period via chat. A recording of the webinar will be available only to those that registered. One CEU for landscape architects will be available.
Cost: free to all MPF dues-paying members and Grow Native! professional members, or $15 for non-members.
