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.
Together, we’ll wander through field and forest, meeting 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! After our wild gooseberry chase, we’ll whip up a little tasting. Then you can either learn to cook your own catch of the day or let one of four award-winning restaurants prepare it for you, with lunch or dinner, for free. You could call it “Survivor meets Iron Chef.” We call it find dining.
Discover how easy it is to “take in the landscape.” Outings are suitable for all ages and abilities. Our introductory e-book is included, all equipment is provided, and satisfaction is guaranteed.
For a taste of the wild life, experience the life of a modern hunter-gather firsthand. It’s a unique experience in self-catering, a memorable lesson in high-class survival.
