Wild Edible Workshop
August 11 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us for a Wild Edibles Workshop on Aug. 11 from 1–4 p.m. at Hirundo Wildlife Refuge in Old Town. Trevanna Grenfell, a naturalist and nature connection mentor who works with The Wildwood Path, will guide us in an afternoon spent exploring plant identification, edible and medicinal uses of our local species, and wild plant processing and harvesting skills and protocols. This hands-on wild workshop will help you feel more at home in the woods and fields of Maine by giving you knowledge and skills to harvest wild plants in a way that tends the health of both humans’ communities and wild ecosystems.
Geared towards adults but appropriate for interested children. Participants are requested to dress to be outdoors and come prepared for light walking, standing, and working with your hands. You may want to have a notebook and pen, a pocketknife, and a water bottle.
Trevanna Grenfell was born and raised in Maine, where she spent her childhood camping and canoeing with her family. As an adult, Grenfell travelled the world and learned about how people in diverse cultures connect with nature and support healthy community. When she was ready, she moved home to Maine, where she now teaches and consults about how to grow regenerative community through nature connection. A wildlife tracker, wilderness survival skills practitioner, naturalist, and mentor, Grenfell loves sharing her experience with and passion for the wild with people from all walks of life.
