In response to popular demand, I have filmed a plant identification walk with high quality equipment and by a professional videographer and am in the process of getting it edited. I am hoping to have it available for download or streaming online sometime in October. Stay tuned!
You can watch me on national TV in late October on episode 6 of the upcoming show “Brew Dogs” on the new Esquire Network. When I know the air date, I will be sure to let you know!
While I do not have any in-person foraging classes scheduled this fall, I am available for hire for private presentations, workshops and plant walks on demand for individuals, groups, businesses, and more. I offer guided plant-spirit meditation and smoking ceremonies as well. To inquire about hiring me for speaking or teaching, e-mail me at RebeccaELerner@gmail.com
