HOW IS PRICE DETERMINED?

Every custom course is priced specifically to that course. Many factors determine the price once I know: the duration of the program, the number of participants, course content and distance of travel.

Foraging is a growing interest in our society and more people are searching for ways to obtain food in a self reliant manner. It is essential to be sure we are foraging safely, ethically, and without causing damage to our landscape. Every season and landscape offers unique and nutritious plants to eat and prepare as medicine! Let’s go on a walk and learn about the most local, organic, and free food in our area! This class is offered year round, as different seasons offer various plant species, and plant parts to eat or collect for medicine and utilitarian use. We will be hiking through varied terrain, on and off trail, up to 1 mile.
