Course Information

Seasonal Wild Edible Plants

One day class.

Offered each season - Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall

9 am to 4 pm

This is an entry level class for people who want to enter the delicious world of foraging their own wild food from the landscape, just like our ancestors. We have been offering this class each season of the year since we began teaching in 1997.

Our Seasonal Wild Edible Plant courses focus on the different plants and plant uses of each season. These are one day classes. Each course is a guided walk through different habitats, identifying, collecting and frequent sampling wild plant foods, and pointing out harmful plants to avoid. Each course will cover approximately 40 plants, shrubs and trees, depending on the season. We will cover proper identification and use of these plants, whether plants are native or introduced, when and where to safely collect plants and conservation techniques. Each student gets a copy of our Earth Connection plant book with full color photos and written plant information, created specifically for this class. Wild edible snacks are a part of each course.
