Helping the Earth, Helping Ourselves
September 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Indigenous people of this area hunted, fished, and grew The Three Sisters. But how did they preserve their harvest? How did they keep meat from spoiling without refrigeration? Learn to make pemmican, the original “protein bar.” Try your hand at concocting a dandelion tea. But first, explore the local native plantings at Forest River Park with Thomas Green, Elder of the Massachusett Tribe, to find out which plants you see here today continue to enrich the lives of the local Tribe – and how they can enrich yours!
