Fox Haven Foragers: Level 1 (Session 2) SOLD OUT

February 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join us for the sixth year of Fox Haven Foragers. In this Level 1 series, we’ll visit some common favorites like milkweed, goldenrod, cattail and elderberry. We’ll also introduce some seasonal species to our forage like witch hazel, Paw Paw, sumac, and aronia.

Fermenting blackberry leaves for tea, hunting for edible mushrooms, plucking ripe Paw Paw, cooking up cattail, propagating and stewarding wild species and so much more will be explored this year! Each Foragers class will include plant ID, foraging, and processing the season’s bounty with local guides from diverse backgrounds and skill-sets.

Class runs from 1 pm to 4 pm on the second Saturday of each month from February through November. The first 2 hours of class will be held in the field, gathering plants and learning botany skills. The last hour is spent processing and preparing the harvest into a tasty meal or a take-home medicinal.
