The first few minutes will help you hone safety skills that are crucial to the success of any foraging. This is an identification-foused class where we will relate what you see to common grocery store items through sight, smell or taste. We encourage you to take the same class at multiple locations or different times of the year to improve retention & to provide a high personal success rate! TERRAIN: As a working horse ranch with a stream and hills, this site is muddy and can have a stream crossing that you’ll need to be very careful for. The water running down the hillsides and natural animal byproducts makes this an excellent mushrooming location with lots of natural mint families, fields of herbs, and tree variations. PARKING & FACILITIES: Weekend classes are encouraged to park across the street at Stirn’s Garage paved area, but if it is full, park in the lower lot or the lower field. Do not park at the stables and white house. There is a port-a-potty in the lower parking lot. 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. At this site, we specifically recommend waterproof shoes such as rain boots with good tread or waterproof hiking boots. Muck boots are the shoe of choice by the instructors. WHAT ELSE TO KNOW: Volunteer opportunities are plentiful at this non-profit location.
