Foraging, Harvesting, and Processing of Wild Grains
What: Most civilizations have existed throughout history due to deeply ingrained relationships with their geographic regions highly yielding, densely producing seed-heads. In this landscapes history the land has seen the foraging, harvesting, and production of a great variety of grains and pseudo-grains, including cattail, wild amaranth, lambs quarters, buckwheats (polygonaceae), maize, hemp, and most recently lots of rye, wheats, and GMO corn. We will explore the modern existence of many of these food sources and find many of them on our farm. Learn about the role wild grains play in our ecosystem and also about the methods that our ancestors have used to make better use of these incredibly important plants.
