The Gifts of Northwest Native Trees

Saturday November 14, 2020 9am-12pm

Sunday November 15, 2020 9am-12pm

Skokomish Elder Bruce Miller once said, “The trees were our first teachers.” 

Trees are models of adaptability, resourcefulness, and collaboration. They live in one place their entire lives, building the structures and relationships they need to thrive. They also play a powerful role in our environment, shaping the weather and the plant communities beneath them. 

In this online 2 day zoom workshop, we will investigate common native trees that contribute to the health and diversity of Northwest landscapes. Participants will gain skills in tree identification and explore their uses for food, medicine, and traditional technologies. 

Participants will receive a curriculum kit in the mail before class. The curriculum is adaptable for kindergartners through adults with lesson plans, an identification key, tree matching cards, Salish stories, and recipes. Limit 20 participants. 

Registration closes November 8. 

Taught by members of the Tend, Gather and Grow development team.

 

We are offering a sliding scale for this workshop. Pay what you can: $75/$100/$125 - proceeds will cover shipping and supply costs and support GRuB programs.

 

This class will be taught on Zoom online conferencing – a free platform. Participants will need wifi internet and to download the Zoom application on a computer before class. You will receive information on how to login to class with your registration.
