Santa Barbara Independent interviews Christopher Nyerges about the workshop on Saturday, November 2

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop filled up at press time but we've started a waiting list in the event of a cancellation. Register now to be at the top of that list.

The Santa Barbara Independent's Matt Kettmann interviewed Christopher Nyerges for an article entitled "How to Make Acorns Edible." You can read it at that link. The article brought a flurry of signups. 

At the Acorn Processing Workshop in Ojai you'll learn all aspects of foraging, processing and preparing acorns. We'll identify oaks and other useful plants, sample wild foraged mushrooms, make cordage from yucca, see an introductory demonstration of primitive firemaking, and, if time permits, practice other activities.


Christopher has authored over a dozen books, including  Guide to Wild Foods, Foraging California, Nuts and Berries of California, How to Survive Anywhere, Extreme Simplicity, and many more.
