Event: Czech Out foraged dinner!

Harvest season in Texas is quite a thing. We’re putting on a 4-course, gourmet dinner at the Czech Out Ranch this October, showcasing all the amazing wild flavors of the Autumn Texas harvest-time!

We’ll have a short plant walk, to talk about what wild foods are currently in season, and then we’ll enjoy a curated, 4-course seasonal wild feast handcrafted to showcase all the wonderful, native flavors of the Texas Hill Country.

These dishes will be one-of-a-kind unique; put together by the amazing Lacie Wall, and we’ll discuss the process of coming up with novel and wild recipes to work with wild ingredients. Detailed information about each dish will be available, as well as copies of my book, “The Cycle of Foraging”, for anyone interested.

–The cost of the dinner is $60/person, and will include wine pairings plus samples of foraged cocktails!

Tickets are available through PayPal @ paypal.me/anaturalplace. Please include a preferred contact method, as directions will be emailed out prior to the event.

This is a limited seating event! Spots will fill up fast so reserve your spot today.

Event: FARFA Conference 2019

I will be speaking during the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance – Farm and Food Leadership Conference August 11th – 13th , in San Marcos, Texas.

The Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance has been lobbying for small farmers and producers for years, and this is a GREAT event to meet discerning people, learn more about current events, and what you (we) can all do to improve our food supply and help protect our land. Texas leads the nation in loss of farmland. The answer lies in helping small farmers stay profitable and explore new opportunities. I’ll also be speaking on a panel about native and wild species of edible plants, and the implications they can have for food system sustainability and habitat restoration.

Topics covered at the event will include:

  • In-depth pre-conference workshops to help farmers and producers with practical solutions, whether they be related to livestock or fruit and vegetable production.
  • Knowledgeable and engaging speakers on topics that include the state of today’s farmers’ markets, nutrition, crop diversity, water policy, farm support programs, GMOs, food freedom, and more.
  • Networking with individuals and businesses who care about our local farms and food.
