Foraging for Spring Wild Edibles

Course Overview

This class is a great introduction to wild foods as we focus on just five common, nutritious, and often abundant plants. These early risers sprout up almost as soon as the snow is gone, so you can be eating nutritious local green vegetables long before the farmers market gets rolling. We will start with introductions, ethics, and identification, and then take a field trip to locate and harvest the spring bounty. We then will come back to the classroom and prepare some simple dishes using what we collected. Participants should be prepared to hike one to two miles in the woods.
