open CLOSED for three beginner foraging classes this spring in the Cascade foothills near Seattle. ***Stay tuned for more classes offered in the future.*** Each class will be a three-hour trail walk (2 miles, easy terrain) with an emphasis on identification and food preparation. We’ll examine dozens of wild plants and fungi that can be used in the kitchen. Trailside discussion will include notes on life cycle, habitat, season, harvesting techniques, processing, cooking, recipes, and putting up. Maximum 12 per class. The cost is $35, which includes a copy of my book, Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager.
The dates are:
Friday, March 25 , 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.FULL
Saturday, April 9 , 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.FULL
Monday, May 2 , 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.FULL
Also, I’ll be teaching shellfish and berry-picking workshops sponsored by Bainbridge Island Parks & Recreation.
