Earth Skills Walkabout at the Burton Homestead
Instructors: Co-taught by instructors from 4 Elements Earth Education & the HAALo Herb Shoppe: Rick Berry, Ramsey Demeter, Anna Werderitch, & Alanna Whitney
Date:  April 18
Time: 9:30am - 10:30am
Location: The Burton Homestead, 16200 Lake Vera Purdon Rd in Nevada City
Cost: $10

What plants from our local eco-system can be used for basic needs like shelter, fire, and medicine? In this introductory walkabout, take a journey though time at the Burton Homestead, and learn how ancient and modern people have used plants to meet their daily needs.

The Burton Homestead, just minutes from Nevada City, was once a Native Californian settlement and is now dedicated to environmental education through the Bear Yuba Land Trust. The Tsi Akim tribe has built traditional bark huts on site and uses Native practices to tend the land, and 4 Elements Earth Education has developed shelters and other educational features using traditional and modern technologies.

Join the HAALo Herb Shoppe and 4 Elements Earth Education for this unique introduction into wilderness living skills and botanical medicine in the Sierra Nevada Foothill region. The instructors will also answer questions about the upcoming Earth Skills Field Series, a deeper journey into these skills taking place at the Burton Homestead this summer.
