Wild Edibles Walking Tour

The ability to identify wild plants is an ancient, universal and invaluable human skill. Join us for a walking tour of wild edible plants, or, if you'd like, invite our instructors to your backyard.


Introduction to Wild Mushrooms

Mushrooms provide food, medicine, useful materials for tools, supplies, and more. Join us for a walking tour of wild mushrooms.


How to Eat Acorns

Learn how to use acorns in the kitchen. We’ll cover the whole process: identification, gathering, storage, processing, leaching and cooking.


Eating Japanese Knotweed

We can help to manage the overgrowth of this powerful invasive by eating it! Learn to harvest, gather, process, and eat Japanese knotweed.


Making Wine from Fruits and Flowers

Learn to make wine from foraged fruits and flowers! This lecture-style class will cover the whole process, start to finish, though we won’t actually make wine together. There will be some bottles from last year available for sampling.


Lacto-Fermented Sauerkraut and Kimchi

Fermented foods are an excellent source of vitamins and may promote a healthy gut biome. Learn how to make sauerkraut and kimchi!


Maple Sugaring

Learn how to tap maple trees for syrup, and the basics of supportive and relational, ecological forestry! We'll have some fresh maple sap and syrup on hand to taste.


Bread On A Stick

Bread on a stick, also known as Danish Fire Bread or Snobrod, is so much better than marshmallows! We'll teach how to make an campfire safely and effectively, and make bread on a stick - served with homemade jelly.


Rose Petal Ice Cream

There's nothing like homemade ice cream on a hot summer day - especially if you include some foraged ingredients, like rose petals. This is a great activity to pair with a series of games, because only one person can turn the hand-cranker at a time.


Dandelion Donuts

Have you ever had a dandelion donut? Technically, it's just a batter-dipped deep-fried dandelion flower that's been rolled in cinnamon-sugar. But, they are delicious, and it's fun to call them "donuts!"
