Foraging: Roots for Coffee & More with Jon Darby

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, and sample a warm taste before we finish. Beginners and experienced foragers are welcome. Be prepared to walk, often at times on muddy or uneven surfaces. Dress for the weather and season! We meet at the pole barn.

Health and Safety

Due to COVID-19 the Horn Farm Center is offering on-site educational programming with some modifications in order to ensure the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff. All classes will be held outside and are limited to 10 participants per class. If more than one class occurs on the same day, start times will be staggered to reduce the number of individuals arriving at the same time. Multiple hand sanitizer stations are available. We will adjust as needed as time passes and things change.
Participant expectations are as follows:

  • Participants are required to bring a mask and wear it when proper physical distancing cannot be maintained. We have a limited supply on hand if you forget yours.
  • Physical distancing of 6 feet must be maintained except in case of family members.
  • Do not attend if sick or recovering.
