Rural Forage – learn about the plants that share this place with us! (2016)

October 2, 2016, 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm




Walk through the spontaneous and cultivated vegetation of the rural Sauk County landscape, learn to identify plants, and discover their botanical histories and uses. Forage starts with an herbal beverage and ends with a tasting of edible herbal foods.

This workshop will take place along the Farm/Art DTour at White Mound Park.

Note: There is a $5 charge for parking in the Park unless the vehicle has the Sauk County annual sticker attached to the windshield ($25 annual fee).

The forage will take place whatever the weather – so dress appropriately!

Nancy Klehm cares for bees, bobwhite quail and an orchard, raises perennial vegetables and medicinal plants, stewards a prairie and woodland, runs a community composting cooperative, and makes her own wine, brandy, cheese, miso and herbal medicine. An ecologist hailing from The Great Lakes, Nance’s work has been covered internationally in both print and media outlets as well as in over 15 books. She has lead foraging walks in both rural areas and large cities on four continents, but never in Wisconsin!
