Spring Foraging (with Nicholas WazeeGale)

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

$65 – $115

This will be a full day of exploring, learning, eating and discussing the abundant edible growth that spring offers. We will explore and sample both plants that grow near to our homes and those of the wilder forests and meadows, and we will make sure our learning is complete with discussions on plant families, concerns and cautions, habitats and proper recognition, and many other aspects of knowledgeable and productive harvesting in spring. Spring is overwhelmingly a time of greens, but some roots are still available after the winter, and buds, stalks, and flowers are also great spring foods. Some early mushrooms may even make an appearance. This is truly a spectacular time in the Driftless, and with some dedication and education, you can make it a delicious one as well!

Instructions: Please bring a bowl and spoon for lunch in a medium-sized backpack. Students are welcome to bring a medium shovel and/or gathering receptacles for some harvesting. You may also wish to bring a notebook, water bottle, and an extra layer, as we will be outdoors for this class.
