Announcing Beginner PNW Foraging Classes

Sign-up is now open CLOSED for three beginner foraging classes this spring in the Cascade foothills near Seattle. ***Stay tuned for more classes offered in the future.*** Each class will be a three-hour trail walk (2 miles, easy terrain) with an emphasis on identification and food preparation. We'll examine dozens of wild plants and fungi that can be used in the kitchen. Trailside discussion will include notes on life cycle, habitat, season, harvesting techniques, processing, cooking, recipes, and putting up. Maximum 12 per class. The cost is $35, which includes a copy of my book, Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager.

The dates are:

  • Friday, March 25, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. FULL
  • Saturday, April 9, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. FULL
  • Monday, May 2, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. FULL

To sign up or request more information, please email me at: finspotcook AT gmail dot com. Group dates possible.

Also, I'll be teaching shellfish and berry-picking workshops sponsored by Bainbridge Island Parks & Recreation.

I'm so thankful that you've begun offering these classes! I've missed out on the first round, but I'll be checking daily for the next list.

Thanks for sharing the good news about foraging!

Would you be willing to consider listing your events with http://jocelynsevents.com/ ? It's a very useful and consolidated place for all types of classes located in the PNW.

So excited for Monday! I hope you hold more of these - and on the weekends, I hope. I'm completely out of vacation time after this. :(

The foraging class was loads of fun and I learned a lot. Thanks so much for offering these and passing your knowledge along!

I've been looking for a class just like this, any chance you'll be offering this again anytime soon?
