Foraging for Roots

Foraging is the act of finding and gathering wild foods. By engaging in this age-old practice, we can provide ourselves with healthy and abundant food and medicine, become more self-reliant, and connect on a much deeper level to the landscape in which we live.

November - Roots! Now is the time to begin digging roots - as the plants begin to draw their energies into the ground to store them for winter, we can begin to take advantage of this and dig them up to be used as tasty root vegetables or process and dry them for coffee, tea, and medicine. We'll demonstrate the process for taking them from root to coffee. Beginners and experienced foragers are welcome.

Come prepared for all weather, to get dirty, wet, and sometimes hot and sticky! This class is family and child friendly, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is per person, regardless of age.

This class will be taught by HFC Board Member and owner of Riverbend Foraging, Jon Darby.
