Foraging is the most ancient of human activities. Though so much of the know-how of hunter-gatherers of the past has been lost, the basic skills needed to harvest from the wild are innate and easy to learn. All of us can recognize patterns, pay attention to detail, and learn to read the environment. Foraging transforms us, connects us to nature not only as observers, but as participants.

Intro walks are for beginners, and for those with experience foraging who want to sharpen their skills or get to know local wild edibles better. They run 1 1/2 to 2 hours and are family friendly. Children under 12 come free, but please let us know 

if young kids will be coming with you so we can get a head count and keep the group small for the best learning experience. 

 

When you join us on an intro walk, you'll learn to:

  • identify and harvest wild edibles and medicinals

  • identify species you should avoid

  • learn about local habitats and what useful species can likely be found there

The location for each walk will be sent to you when you register, along with other details.

 

We're also delighted to announce our first ever Wild Awareness Walk on February 3rd, listed below. While this walk may include some winter foraging, it differs from most foraging walks in that we'll focus on games and techniques for sharpening awareness skills in wild places, including tracking skills, seasonal change awareness and more! Come prepared for some movement exercises, and an optional blindfolded tracking activity! Make friends and learn to see the world in new ways!

 

 See you in the woods!
