    Let's gather together for some good ol' campfire cooking! For this class we will have fun cooking various foods over our campfire. We will also forage to make wild tea. Participants will be able to make their own individual food, and there will be a vegetarian soup for the group. Please be sure to bring your own bowl, spoon, and mug. This class is for families with children of all ages and individual adults. This is not a drop-off class for children.

    The entire class will be held outdoors and will include a short walk on our wooded trail about 1/10 mile to our space. Human Composting Outhouse-style bathrooms are available. If weather is severe, this event may be rescheduled or cancelled.
