Course Description

Take a journey traversing the fields and forests of Bloomington. We spend time each class in the outdoors observing, learning, drawing, collecting, and tasting edible wild plants. Each session will be in a different location: woods, fields, wetlands, lawns etc. Plan to spend some time in some of the most beautiful spaces in your community, from the Bloomington Community Orchard to Lake Griffy. We’ll carpool together and have the opportunity to see where edible wild plants are growing, and how to collect and use them in recipes. The class completes with a delicious wild edible celebration!

SustainCollins course – open to all Collins students.
