Botanical Gardens

IF YOU USE GPS, MAKE SURE IT GOES TO THIS LOCATION.

Also make sure you have enough time to get there.

Our outing will be at the UNCA Botanical Gardens, about 5 minutes north of downtown Asheville; see directions below. Do not rely on your GPS until you make sure it matches these directions or you will very likely get lost.

These directions are from central Asheville, specifically, from Greenlife Grocery (our local Whole Foods). We recommend buying snacks or even a picnic lunch for after the tour, as well as “using the facilities” while you’re there.

Finally, remember that if you’re planning to bring some of our “catch of the day” to one of our partner restaurants, you MUST make a special reservation (see here). See you in the woods!

Directions
151 West .T. Weaver Boulevard, Asheville, NC 28804

You can’t learn to forage from a website.
Always learn from an expert, preferably your parents.
