We invite you leap into the natural world to discover the bounty of the Earth and to gain the skills to safely forage and prepare wild foods and medicines. If you feel uncertain on how to start or if you could use more guidance on how to advance your foraging practice, please join us.
This monthly Foraging series begins with an inspirational kickoff session in March to grow the roots of safe and skillful foraging, and then meets each month to learn new skills, compare experiences, gather various foods and/or medicines, and work together on preparing & preserving. Each workshop can be taken as a stand-alone class, but the greatest benefit will emerge from ongoing participation.
