During this class format we will taste prepared samples of plants growing at Crow Feather Farm as well as get to meet them as they are manifesting themselves in real time. Tasting is a wonderful way to start a relationship with plants.
During this class format we focus on one plant in more detail and will gain some direct experience in working with this plant. The activities of the Dig in & Learn classes will change through the seasons and will depend on the plant we are working with but you leave the class with a deeper relationship with that plant.
A short series of classes meant to introduce you to basic designs that support a diverse and healthy urban farm system. You can easily scale these ideas up or down since these design strategies are inspired by patterns reflected in the world around us.
“In the Western tradition there is a recognized hierarchy of beings, with, of course, the human being on top—the pinnacle of evolution, the darling of Creation—and the plants at the bottom. But in Native ways of knowing, human people are often referred to as “the younger brothers of Creation.” We say that humans have the least experience with how to live and thus the most to learn—we must look to our teachers among the other species for guidance. Their wisdom is apparent in the way that they live. They teach us by example. They’ve been on the earth far longer than we have been, and have had time to figure things out.”
