Join us on August 27th for a special foraging walk and social hour at the Horn Farm Center.
Summer is an abundant time for foraging! Explore local plant ecology, gain knowledge about wild edibles, and discover alternative uses for plants on a special guided foraging walk with Woodland Steward, Wilson Alvarez. This class emphasizes ethical foraging and ways of giving back to the land –reinforcing how thinking like an ecosystem should guide our practice of gathering wild foods.
We invite you to choose from one of two complimentary program sessions – the morning or afternoon. All participants are invited to join us for refreshments and socializing in the corn barn from 12:00pm-1:00pm (either before or after your selected program).

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.
