Ready to go WILD? Join us “off the eaten path” as we uncover the Garden of Eden all around us: edible greens, berries, mushrooms, flowers, nuts, roots… we never know what we might find. We’ll meet ten to twenty wild foods, focusing on the ones you might find in your own woods or backyard. Then you get to eat what you’ve found!
For over twenty years, we have offered foraging tours and activities for all ages and abilities, including wild foods cooking, hunter-gatherer team-building, forest bathing, and more.
