Day 13: Cooking Wild Edibles of the Yard & Neighborhood

Today, in place of a workshop canceled due to the state’s “stay at home” order, we will explore yard herbs, and open up the camp stove to cook wild edibles such as dandelion, nettle, berry flowers, and even grass! Chris will also demonstrate how to refill those green propane campstove tanks so you don’t have to throw them away anymore. We’ll end the broadcast today with the beautiful song “I Give Thanks” by Leslie Lightfall. Please consider a donation if you enjoy the video lesson and would like to help keep Wolf Camp administrative staff employed through springtime.

TEMPORARY NOTE: We need 1,000 subscribers before we can live stream via YouTube from our phone in the field so PLEASE go to and subscribe. Again, they have a rule that we need 1,000 subscribers in order to schedule live streams from our phone or tablet. Let’s get this done quick and ask all your family and friends to subscribe as well. THANKS!

Tomorrow we’ll make home-made deodorant in case there’s a run on that at the store (lol) and finish what we started on Friday, turning our herbal oil into a salve. Next week we’ll tour our orchard and plant a tree, start a community garden along the sidewalk, share the language of the birds and embark on a wild animal tracking adventure.  

Announcements & Reminders:

Support your local emergency hospitals, first responders, homeless service providers and other essential care givers by finding out what kind of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) they need, then launch a neighborhood effort to round up and deliver those items.

– Going outside is the healthiest way to maintain happiness while social distancing, where virus concentrations dissipate in the fresh air and get killed by ultraviolet (UV) rays, and where the sun helps us produce Vitamin D which also keeps us happy and well. Gardening is also a great way to stay healthy, and if things get tough, one of the best ways to increase your food security.

Please consider a contribution if you benefited from this video, and help us keep Wolf Camp and the Conservation College at Blue Skye Farm going during this time when we can’t run spring workshops. We’re hoping to keep administrative staff employed in advance of the summer camp season. Your support will keep our daily “You Healthy? Go Outside!” Evening Broadcast – Family Friendly Music & Earth Skills Activities with Kim & Chris Chisholm going at Wolf Camp and the Conservation College’s  Blue Skye Farm.

Thanks, and please catch live broadcasts on the Wolf Camp facebook page or via the Wolf College youtube channel live stream if we’re within wifi range starting at 6:00 PM Pacific, or view it when we post it here at 7:00 PM, until the social distancing era end or June 14, 2020, whichever comes quickest:)
