Upcoming Class: Tending Herbs in the Hill Country
Sunday, February 20, 2022
I'm offering plant walks again! Contact me at EatWild@gmail.com to inquire about availability and pricing. Oh, and for those of you wondering what I've been up to for the past several years: working to protect and preserve more Hill Country lands and rivers with the Hill Country Alliance! I am proud of the work I did with them to accelerate conservation efforts and secure more funding to protect the land, water, and plant communities in our area. As a lifelong forager and plant person watching more and more of our natural landscapes disappear, I knew I had to do more to protect our wildlands. Thanks to all of you working to protect and preserve our precious Hill Country for future generations.

Foraging is a Family Thing
I've spent a lot of time digging through old photos lately. Found these gems of us picking sparkleberries in the pines east of Austin several years ago. Now that my boys are teenagers, it's hard to remember these days when they were so little. And it's not always easy to remember them as foragers as they speed through their teen years full of sports and screen time and school stuff. Then again, a few recent photos show their wilderness skills are still intact! Joe Henry paddles with his fishing friends almost every weekend on our beatiful Hill Country rivers. Garner reminds me when the blackberries are ripe every spring!
