Acorn Processing with Osker Brown

September 27, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Acorns served as the primary staple food across the northern hemisphere for millennia. They provide a complete protein, high-oleic mono-unsaturated fat, and vitamins and minerals. Unlike annual grains, their production and harvest fits seamlessly into a highly diverse and resilient forest ecosystem. In this workshop we will discuss everything we’ve learned about harvesting, storing, and processing this high quality staple food. We will showcase each step of the process, and provide some delicious acorn snacks.

$20 per person

Osker manages Glorious Forest, where he is working to develop wild staple foods, silvopasture, and coppice systems in rural Madison County.
