I’ve been foraging for wild food and medicine since 2006 and would love to teach you how to do it too! My foraging walks are not one size fits all. Each walk is personalized to you, your property, and your group. Get ready to have fun and benefit from my 17+ years of foraging experience and Herbalism education!

The bounty nature provides for you is everywhere, including right at your feet!
This is a great learning event for any age group, including Home School kids.

For most people, foraging is best learned in person so that you can be really certain of your identification and taste test the things we find. This is an indispensable survival skill that you will be glad to have learned for the rest of your life.

Private Foraging Tour: I come to your house or property and walk all over it with you, finding and showing you the many different plants available to you and helping you understand how to work with them in a sustainable manner.

Group Foraging Walk: For 5 people or more, we can do this on your own land, a public/state park, or a local farm.

Foraging Workshop: For small groups, we can do this on private land or in a public park and take a group hike where I will help you all identify the herbs and edibles we find along the way. We can harvest some and make food or medicine with the plants after we hike! This works great if you have a kitchen or place where I can set up a few tools with which to create something like a tea, pesto, vinegar, or make small meal for you to eat. Generally 2-3 hours.
