Happy Thanksgiving week to everyone. It has felt good doing workshops again, I had a full class for the 11/6 Wilderness Survival workshop. I've done a teacher development day and I've had several volunteer school events. I was contacted by the Patawomeck Tribal Council and I am now working with their future cultural center ( which opens spring 2022 ) interpreters.
My goal for next year is to 'broker' guest instructors that have skill sets that I don't. I am presently talking with basket makers, flint knappers and folks who practice herbology. This way you get to learn new skills and I do too. So check the blog and my Facebook page for updates on these events.
I have a renewed appreciation for the plant world. If not for plants and being able to ID them, we could not make fire, cordage or fill our stomachs. Animal protein is essential but the number of edible plants out in the wild are amazing. Since Covid started I have immersed myself in what plants I can eat. You can store food but that is an iffy long term strategy, you can't always depend on animal protein but the plants are pretty consistent. The Peterson edible/medicinal field guides are still some of the best out there for IDing and plant usage.
Winter is here so this is a good time of year to work on our friction fire skills and check your car emergency bags. Thank you everyone for attending all the workshops the past 2 months.
