Plant Walk & Wild Harvest

Plant Walk & Materials Harvest

DIY Homesteader Festival Workshop:

Plant Walk & Wild Harvest

Our natural surroundings can provide us with a wide variety of basketry materials. Join Laura Reeves of Prairie Shore Botanicals to learn which plants are best for which styles of baskets. Find out when and how to harvest them, as well as how to prep and store them for later use.

This workshop is a prelude, but not a prerequisite, to Sunday’s Natural Basket-making workshop.

This workshop may run slightly past the 1.5 hour workshop time. 

Hands-on: Workshop participants will take a guided plant walk around the farm and help collect materials for Sunday’s basketry workshop, as well as learn about other plants along the way.

Accessibility: This workshop involves walking around the farm, into marshy areas, fields and possibly forests.
