Service Description

80% of Americans live in a city, and urban foraging is a very different experience from being in the wild. Not only will we talk about what types of foods to look for from wild plants to cultivated trees, but we’ll also explore how to safely find places to forage while appreciating the differences in how to gather in an urban area versus the wild. These classes are extremely small in order to ensure safety of participants in urban areas as well as to really get in-depth with the complexity of establishing relationships in your own area. An urban forage walk is perfect for those that want to know how to hone their foraging skills on everyday walks or those who want to learn how to create relationships for sharing food in urban areas. TERRAIN: Sidewalks, alleys, and postage-stamp yards will provide us with a variety of unexpected plants, shrubs, and trees. PARKING & FACILITIES: Street parking. 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. Large parts of this location are unshaded. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring a hat for shade. WHAT ELSE TO KNOW: Along with teaching you about plants, these walks are excellent to teach you how to create relationships for future urban foraging. Also, we try to create start/stop points with businesses that support our ideals. Come early or stay after to explore these wonderful offerings.
