Foraging Classes

Learn to hunt wild mushrooms, find edible local plants, harvest seaweed, and discover the ocean’s secrets.

These classes are great for both the beginning forager and the veteran. They range from educational walks in SF parks to morel picking in the Sierra Mountains.

On our hikes, you'll learn more about the local wild foods all around you and come away with a deeper appreciation for the amazing place where we live.
