Lancaster-based permaculture business, The ReWilding School, begins its Forager’s Cooperative Program this month, making the purchase of ethically wild-crafted food packages available to the public. Seasonally harvested food packages will be sold in three six-week installments: spring, summer and fall, with an optional berry package.
A typical weekly package will include abundant wild foods featuring salad greens such as violet, chickweed and bass wood leaves; potherbs such as nettles and garlic mustard; roots such as burdock; and fruits, flowers and herbs. Pickups begin on April 19 at a private residence on the west side of Lancaster County. Beginning May 25, the pickup location moves to East Side Market at Musser Park.
The ReWilding School is accepting applications for apprentices to work on the Forager’s Cooperative project.
Cost: $400 for all 18 weeks; $150 per six-week package; additional $50 for berry package. For more information including pickup location details, email [email protected] or visit ReWildingSchool.wordpress.com.
