Educational Walk - Edible Plants at Ganondagan State Historic Site 10/4

Enjoy a two hour walk at Ganondagan to learn about edible plants with our experienced guide and educator Deborah Denome.

We will enjoy a gentle, wild edible and medicinal plant walk at Ganondagan State Historic Site. Along the trails, we will identify plants and trees that have been traditionally honored as food and medicine and perhaps sample some wild foods (optional if people feel safe). I will bring wild foods from Shimmering Light Farm and share simple recipes. We will not be harvesting anything from the Ganondagan site. Woven throughout will be conversation about how to safely and ethically harvest from the wild and the concepts of Reciprocity and Wildtending. Folks will have an opportunity to share about any of their own wild food experiences.

Deborah Denome is an educator, horticultural therapist, herbalist and certified forest therapy guide. Since 1997 Deborah served as Director of Shimmering Light Farm & Renewal Center and she is co-founder of Finger Lakes Forest Therapy. Over the last two decades she has worked extensively with people on a healing journey through domestic violence, addiction, disabilities and poverty. Her previous corporate career was in international training and publishing and she was the 2008 Canandaigua Athena Award recipient for her work promoting women in leadership.
