Sustainable Dining – Women’s Forest to Table Workshop comes to Vermejo

Each day we learn a little bit more about how we can live a planet-supporting lifestyle. Eating what you harvest can be a part of an earth-friendly life. In fact, it’s one way you can be certain of the path your food travels to get to your table. Here is an article about “When Hunting Animals is Eco-conscious” that explains how hunting is part of our quest to “Save Everything” at Ted Turner Reserves.

Are you interested in knowing where your food comes from and in bringing organic, grass-fed, non-GMO meat home to your table? Do you want to feel confident in the wilderness and learn backcountry skills that will last a lifetime? If so, you may want to join Vermejo’s first-ever Forest to Table Workshop.

From the beginning of history, humans have been hunter-gatherers, practicing the age-old principles of regeneration and balance. Now, Vermejo is offering an opportunity to join with a group of accomplished women hunters, including Rihana Cary and Amanda Caldwell, as well as Vermejo’s own Jen Judge, author of “Becoming an Independent Outdoorswoman,” to learn the basics of firearm safety and shooting, wildlife ecology, learn how eating what you harvest can save the planet and the art of wilderness hunting. This empowering group of women will help you take these skills into the field to harvest a cow elk.

That’s right: You’ll hunt and harvest your own meat. You’ll learn to field dress an animal and best practices for packing and butchering. Then you’ll head into the kitchen, where Vermejo chefs will share their secrets to preparing the mouthwatering wild game dishes we serve in the dining room. Our processor will cut, package, and ship your frozen meat directly to your home.

Here is a more detailed look at how you’ll build your skills each day in a safe, friendly, and patient group of your peers:
