Berries are a wonderful & tasty way to start foraging, especially if you have young ones interested in helping out! This class will cover the most common berries and roses along with a few other seasonal flowers or plants that we find along the way, and we always do our best to relate what you’re learning to common grocery store items and familiar foods. Our introductory classes cover safety as a main focus, and we will spend time learning what cautions to take, how to be aware of dangers, and how to safely explore new wild foods! This class is an excellent companion to our “Foraged Tea: Sips & Sourcing” classes where you’ll get to taste several types of tea or to our second level of more in-depth ID “Berries, Brambles & Roses” which includes things like cherry trees, blueberries & huckleberries. TERRAIN: As a working U-Pick flower farm, this site is easy to navigate, but it does have some hills. Marshy areas near the stream mean boots are ideal. Extensive teaching gardens here are scattered to display native plants, shrubs and trees that love marshes, hillsides and forests. A uniquely perfect teaching site. PARKING & FACILITIES: Follow the signs for the U-Pick flower farm to the open gravel lot next to an open field. You’ll see a flower stand and chicken eggs at the entrance. Port-a-potty ONLY AVAILABLE July-Oct. WHAT TO BRING: We always recommend dressing for the weather and being prepared to hike a bit outdoors. You should also bring your phone to take pictures with and a notebook if you’d like to take notes. Large parts of this location are unshaded. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring a hat for shade. WHAT ELSE TO KNOW: From July-October the U-Pick is open for business, and they sell their own eggs. Volunteer opportunities to learn about flower farming are available.
