Participants will learn about wild edibles and their uses from knowledgeable instructors and speakers. There will be activities for children and adults, field trips, presentations, demonstrations, a cooking contest, a potluck banquet, and lots of hands-on activities. You’ll have a chance to interact with other foraging enthusiasts from around the region and beyond.
