Plant Uses

I participated in the Plant Uses class with Jim Lowery and Mary Brooks of Earth Skills this past Sunday. This is the second class I have taken with Earth Skills and once again I walked away with an intimate nature experience and more ancient wisdom to gain from and practice.

We worked some yucca stalks into cordage, mashed a few acorns, observed and practiced much more in the identification and use of our amazingly bountiful and varied plant world all around us here in Southern California. The conclusion included a demonstration of Jim's primitive fire making skills. The debris hut was not part of the class but it is taught in the Wilderness Survival three day course I believe.
