The practice of collecting wild edibles provides unique foods that are tasty and nutrient-rich! Join Maria Wesserle of Four Season Foraging as we hike the woods and fields of Amador Hill Farm in search of springtime foragables. Plants we may find include stinging nettle, lamb’s quarters, chickweed, burdock, and more! At the end of the class, we will harvest and cook the wild bounty together, collectively creating a memorable meal. Though a potluck was originally a part of this class, due to Covid we are changing the lunch plan slightly; please bring your own personal main dish to supplement the foraged goodies. Please also bring your own plates and silverware.

In 2017, Maria founded Four Season Foraging to offer monthly foraging workshops, creating a space where people can learn to interact with urban and rural wild places in meaningful and sustainable ways.
