Winter Foraging Walks

What can you forage in winter in the Northeast?

More than you would think! There are the wonderful evergreen trees and bushes, the surprise of red berries and mushy crabapples, seeds you didn’t know you could use, and the skeletal stalks of plants to tell you where to find food and medicine when the snows melt and spring warms the earth.

Come for a walk to meet trees and bushes like white pine, spruce, and juniper/cedar, find the berries, like rose hips, and seeds that are still around, and learn to recognize at least a couple of wild stalks showing you where next year’s harvest can be found. If there is no snow cover, we may find rosettes of leaves of plants that can be harvested, and maybe even a dandelion flower or two!

Much of what we ca n find in the winter is Know what you can use for cold and flu season that maybe right outside your door!

We will walk for 1 hour and you will find 3 trees for making tea, food, and medicines, as well as other berries and plants. Some of these are great for helping with colds and flus! You will go home with directions and several recipes for using what we have found.

Winter Foraging Walk (1 hour)–$75.00 for 1 to 3 people, each additional person $25.00. Talk to me about family rates and or if you have limited income.
