From August 22 - 30 we are offering a week of low-cost and free classes to teach safe and sustainable techniques for getting food from our big, wild backyard. Classes range from free lectures on poisonous plants to short courses on berries, cutting fish, and even fermentation! The week of fun will culminate on Sunday, August 30th with a Savor Wild Alaska Potluck Feast from 5-8pm at the Folk School (2861 Beverley Lane). This week of fun is brought to you by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Tanana Valley Watershed Association, The Folk School, Calypso Farm and Ecology Center, and Cooperative Extension Service, and other partners.
