Here’s what students from the first Urban Foraging 101 walk on 4/11 had to say:
“I loved the workshop! I really had a blast!” – S.L.
“Thanks for a fun and entertaining class, I enjoyed it a lot.” – N.S.
“We had a lot of fun. Thanks for making it casual and for providing so much info.” – A.T.
Come celebrate Earth Day in Portland with Urban Foraging 101! Our class will be held from 3 – 5 p.m. on Thursday 4/22 @ corner of NE 23rd Ave. and Alberta St. I’ll be leading the class with the rewilding plant genius known as Emily Porter.
You’ll have a chance to see, touch, taste, smell and even smoke a variety of new plant friends, including purple dead nettle, dandelion, plantain, stinging nettle, chickweed, lemon balm, cleavers and more! We will talk about how to identify them and discuss their nutritional and medicinal benefits, how they were historically used, how to harvest them, and what to do with them. The class is designed for people who have little to no plant or foraging experience. Expect it to be fun, laidback and packed with info!
$16 in advance, $20 cash in person. Register online through TrackersNW here.
I’ll also be leading an Urban Foraging 101 walk solo in Eugene on Sunday, 5/2 from 3:30 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the corner of Maitreya EcoVillage, 882 Almaden St., Eugene, OR 97402. $13 in advance, $15 in person. (Same class as the Portland version). Register online through ReWild Eugene here.
