Wild edibles talk

Hopefully late is better than never for this post…

A couple months ago I was asked to give a presentation to the local kayak club on the Survivalism stuff that I do.  After some thought I decided to do it and picked wild edibles as the subject of the presentation.

I was not sure how well it would go since I have never done a presentation like that before and I knew that any time I took doing the presentation was time taken out of everyone’s time on the water paddling.  With that in mind, I tried to keep my presentation short and engaging, I brought plenty of examples and samples to try.

I couldn’t be happier with how the presentation went, everyone seemed very interested and asked plenty of questions, many people tried some of the edible greens I passed around (Lambs quarters) and everyone tried some of the Sumac tea I made.  Afterwords quite a few people told me how much they enjoyed the presentation and I also heard from the club president that she had gotten many positive comments.

I made up a single page handout that had 4 different wild edibles many people can find in their yard or around their house, if you would like to see a copy of the handout I made you can click the image below to download it (You need Adobe Reader to view it).

Based off from how that went, I would be open to do some more presentations like that, and I let them know I would be more than happy to present again if they wanted me to.
