Kentucky is home to some of the most beautiful & giving trees known to North America. Native indigenous peoples & early settlers relied heavily on tree food crops (acorns, chestnuts, hickory nuts, beech nuts, black walnuts, pawpaws, persimmons and various boiled down tree saps for syrup and sugar making (maples are known as the primary genus for these purposes although black walnut syrup is a delicious product as well). During this workshop we'll discuss a bit of history on native food trees, indigenous practices and uses of specific trees, harvesting tree crops and preparations of tree crops like acorns & hickory nuts. Oaks, Hickories, Black Walnuts, Beech, Persimmons, Maples & Hackberry make up a general overview of the species we'll cover during the workshop. This workshop takes place in a forested area and walking upwards to 2 miles is very likely. There will be a waiver to fill out upon purchase of admission tickets that’s required to join us.
