Service Description

Wild Foods Hikes are a hands-on way to learn about plants and fungi. Whether you are a beginner, new to the area/ecosystems, or excited to learn more about our more-than-human kin. While IDs and edibility are a major focus; other topics may include medicinal uses, ecology, harvesting methods, craft uses, basic botany, mycology, taxonomy, and dye mushrooms/plants. Classes begin with 5-10min introductions. If you're running a few min late, no worries! Hiking portion will range from 45min to an hour and will end with a UV hike in the twilight. Flashlights are helpful. Note: We will not actively forage on the hike, as many locations cannot support a large group. We'll learn about the species present which typically changes weekly and by location. SLIDING SCALE Accessibility is important! Choose your donation amount based on your household budget/income. Barter or work-trade may be possible. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Though classes do tend to fill fast. Drop-in: $8-$12 per hike, per person *Specify which dates you will be attending and payment rate when you register. PAYMENT/DONATION Look for an email with payment instructions (within 1-2 days of registering). Donations are accepted through Venmo or Cash App. If you would prefer to pay with cash or check, please make arrangements prior to the event. RESERVATIONS NEEDED Classes are limited to 12 people. You must pay in advance or make arrangements to reserve your spot. Day-of registrations may possible if there are open spots. LOCATIONS As growth patterns vary widely, locations will be scouted a day or two prior and announced by text/email the day before the class. All locations are within 20-30min of the City. CANCELATIONS/REFUNDS Due to logistical challenges, refunds cannot be granted for cancelations. Even if you are sick. For this same reason it's not possible to reschedule sessions. COVID 19 For the group's safety, if you are feeling sick, please stay home. If you are recovering from a recent episode of Covid 19 wear a mask. WEATHER Unless there is a Severe Storm or Flood Warning, we will hike. Storms tend to pass quickly. On rainy days bring an umbrella and/or rain gear.
