Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between the wild food stroll and the foraging tour?
The main difference is that on stroll, we meet and taste edibles but don’t actually gather them. Other differences are that the foraging tour lasts three hours, not 1.5 hours, and takes place at various locations 15-45 minutes from Asheville, not right in town. It also includes a cooking demo and tasting and four restaurants to choose from, not just one.
What should I wear?
For the foraging component, we recommend long pants, socks, and sturdy shoes.
What if it rains?
Tours are generally rain or shine. Check the forecast and dress appropriately. For last minute concerns, see our Contact Page.
