This class will open up the world of local wild foods that grow right within your own yard and near by. 

It is amazing~there is tasty wild food growing right outside your door!  Its really quite simple and our expert guide will give you everything you need to know to take the mystery out of wild foods and bring in the tasty and practical. We are surrounded by such an abundance of green plant allies that are packed with flavor, nutrition, and beauty.  If we care for them, they will continue to be abundant into the future.

In this class, you will be guided by expert wildcrafter Rain and taste the wild abundance right at your fingertips.  Come learn what  you can eat, basic plant i.d., advanced i.d. for those that want it, harvest basketfuls, and then gather to cultivate them into tasty offerings and cook them over the fire.  If the timing is right, we will likely forage for the ever elusive morel mushroom!  Sure to be a feast for the senses, mind, and taste buds!!!  Add a little local flavor to your meals, connect with the earth in a more intimate way, and go home with skills that will feed you and your family and friends.

We will also hold an Advanced Wild Edibles class this Fall! This is perfect for those who have attended a previous Wild Edibles class, and are ready to take their skill set to the next level!
