An antique metal tray holds a tea steeper, a tea pot, bowls of blue and orange flowers, a sugar bowl, and a bundle of lavender. A porcelain tea cup and saucer are next to the tray and there is a glass bottle of flowers and a floral handkerchief on the table as well.

LENGTH & SCHEDULING: 

 

Class will be 1 1/2 hours long, sometimes 2 hours if we have to walk a bit at the property site. We do not reschedule for light rain, wind, heat, cold or muddy grounds, but we will reschedule for severe inclement weather. Private classes are typically on Sundays or during the week. Limited availability and increased pricing for Fridays, Saturdays, & Sundays depending on seasonal demand. 

STRUCTURE: 

 

We will plan to start with a brief introduction to Safety, Etiquette and Laws & Liability which is our SELL method. Then we’ll dive into some commonly found plants, taking a walk to hunt a few down. We will focus on plants, shrubs and trees that are common enough for beginners to find on their own because we want you to leave our class feeling success and with enough confidence to actually use what you’ve learned.

Private Classes

OVERVIEW:

 

Private classes are an excellent gift, a great party idea, or just a fun group activity for those age 8 and up. All of our prices listed below are for a base level class focusing on easy-to-find edible plants to ensure success of our participants. Each class is tailored to suit the group we are teaching. For more advanced walks, speciality topics and mushroom classes, pricing increases to accommodate our specialized instructors and all class supplies. We cannot guarantee specific plants or fungi as all classes are dependent on Mother Nature!

LOCATION:  

 

We will hold the class either on your private land or at one of our host sites depending on what creates the best logistics. If we are on your private land, class topics cannot be guaranteed. If you want to have a class at one of our listed locations, let us know.

KIDS: 

 

For each child 8 and up there must be one legal guardian. This is for everyone’s safety, and it is not negotiable at this time.
