Wild edibles offer a variety of health benefits to you and add unique flavors and textures to your meals. Join Nick Spero for a walk to learn about wild edibles available in the summer. He’ll show you the plants you can pick and nibble along the way, as well as those that you need to bring home to prepare for a meal. You will also learn how to forage in a safe and sustainable manner.


Chanterelle mushrooms should be peaking around this date and Nick will instruct you on their identification.


Cost: $15 per person.
