Earlier in spring the Indigenous Culinary Arts program went to gather and learn about nettles. These amazing plants found along the Pacific Northwest should be respected and treated with care. Part of the learning experience centered around the time and how to harvest.

 

[WARNING: Do not harvest without an adult who has traditional teachings of how to gather. Protocol is important to protecting the species and ensuring a healthy life cycle.]

 

Then in April, a few of the Culture Team staff, was invited on to private property that was beaming with beautiful and indigenous flora. [Flora: plant]

If you would like to learn more talk to your Indigenous Culinary Arts teachers. Keep in mind that this only happens in the spring. Take care and be well.
