Overview: Wild Edible Plants with Katie and Michigan Mushroom Foraging with Luke
Cost: $15, class packages available
Yes, winter foraging is a thing! During this 1-hour experience, join Katie and Luke for a tour of the edible wild plants of Michigan! We'll teach you how to identify edible & medicinal plants and fungi, what you can use them for, where to find them, and ethical foraging practices. Katie will share an introduction to the practice of "wild tending," which acknowledges our human relationship to the natural world and is an approach to foraging that is founded on respect, appreciation and reciprocity to the land, the people who have tended to it, the wildlife, and the amazing plants we meet on our walk, as well as how to follow Michigan foraging laws.
Each class is followed up with an emailed report of the wild edibles we discovered at class so you can continue on your own!
All ages are welcome. No experience in the outdoors is necessary!
