Ethical Gathering & Foraging Techniques:

Stinging Nettle

Welcome to Ethical Gathering and Foraging Techniques with a special focus on Stinging Nettles.

In this class we will begin with the ethics around gathering and the do's and Don'ts. We will touch base on the simple economic, environmental, western and indigenous ethical practices. We will move into learning when to harvest different parts of plants and why that is so important. We will go over what to gather in what season and the tools that are best used. We will learn how to gather roots, whole plants, bulbs, aerial parts through demonstration and hands-on experience. 

The Second half of this class will be hands-on in the kitchen processing fresh nettles into tea and Nesto (Pesto made with Nettles) while discussing its widespread use around the world, its super nutrients, medicinal properties and more. We will also learn a few tricks to keep ourselves from getting stung while cooking and processing fresh nettles and finish with getting to enjoy our delicious and super nutritious recipe.


Each person will get to take home a small mason jar of nesto to share with loved ones, simple medicine making recipes, a certificate for Herbal Education and a detailed workshop class outline.

More details will be emailed to you with the exact address in Olympia and any additional information after registration is complete. 

With Deep Love and Gratitude
