Buckeye Gathering friend Matt Berry and family on Saturday! He and his wife operate "Sierra Living Skills" up in the Grass Valley area. They are starting up a wild foods CSA and are running all kinds of primitive living skills and other related classes. Check out the link to their site to see what they have going on. Great people doing very worthwhile endeavors. He is also going to be one of the instructors on a Morel hunting class that will be held in May for forageSF that I will be attending...as well as an instructor at Buckeye this year.
I had a wonderful time with them...chatting about some of my discoveries tinkering around pressing acorns for oil...and all kinds of other plant stuff. I'll tell you...a lover of ethnobotany can end up feeling kind of like a stranger in a foreign land with no one to talk to. So when someone can actually speak the common language...it's rather therapeutic and invigorating! You can read about our visit in a fun article that Matts' wife Rachel put together at the link above.
Come to Buckeye this year and you can make friends like these too!
