Tree Tea and Flour Cakes Over the Fire
Trees are magnificent creatures that provide so much for us: the wood used to light the fires our ancestors harvested heat from and gathered and cooked around, and food and medicine for us to live! We will start a fire and then make tea from a local tree species over the fire. We’ll also cook flour cakes over the fire’s coals and make delicious treats to share. We give thanks to the trees!
