All About Acorns
October 21, 9 - 11:30AM
Acorns - A Forgotten Food!
Come and learn about the incredible acorn! The acorn is one of nature’s most abundant food sources, often ignored and overlooked. Join us as Will Poirier teaches us how to harvest and safely process this native & local resource. He will be covering the harvesting, processing, and uses of acorn flour.
Acorns are a tasty and nutritious superfood and collecting and using them can become a fun, fall tradition. Like hazelnuts and walnuts, acorns are an edible, nutritious food for human consumption. This is a hands-on workshop and we will be processing acorns.
Will Poirer is a land steward and permaculture practitioner, dedicated to sharing his knowledge of the natural world. Join us in Marstons Mills at Fuller Farm (a Barnstable Land Trust property) for this unique & fun workshop.
