We will walk the unceded land of the Juniata, Tuscarora, Susquehanna, and Haudenosaunee Five Nations people, with agroforesters Trella Dubetz and Jon Delson. We will gather to learn and honor the land and plants that sustained the First Nations People and their families for eons. Among these plants are trees shrubs and forbs that can still provide us all with food, medicine, dyes, cordage, and materials for shelter, clothing and basketry.

The agroforesters will also share their reclamation plans for the family farm to become a center for ecological and spiritual restoration – beginning with working with the DCNR to enhance the streamside buffer by planting native edible and medicinal plants.

Things to bring:

• Water bottles
• Coffee, if desired
• Lunch (no lunches will be provided)
• Sturdy shoes/muck boots
• Camp/bag chairs
• Note pad/pen
• Rain gear (workshop will be held rain or shine)
• Insect/tick repellent
