As outdoor educators, we have long known the importance of engaging the senses of our students and the role that plays in building a sense of place. However, there is one sense that is often left out of the equation: taste. Every landscape has its own cast of characters that work together to form a unique identity. This includes a unique palate of flavors. Becoming aware of the edible landscape around us adds a whole new layer to how we can interact with and perceive our environment. NBNC Teacher-Naturalist Ken Benton will introduce baseline protocols around how we can teach our students to safely interact with the wild foods around us through daily routines, as well as introduce several simple recipes that will give you a whole new way to instill a love for nature in the hearts of our students – through their stomachs.
