Greetings!

I am happy to announce that I will be leading a Spring Foraging hike on Saturday, April 25th at North Park in Allegheny County.

If you are interested in learning how to gather nutritious, free food directly from your landscape (no middle man or woman required!), then this is the perfect class for you!

Why do I think this is the perfect class?  Well, spring is such a great season to learn the craft of foraging.  There is an abundance of wild food available this time of year, including:

  • Spring beauties
  • Wild leeks, or ramps
  • Morel mushrooms
  • Trout lilies
  • Stinging nettles
  • Chickweed
  • Eastern redbud flowers

…and a whole lot more.

By attending this spring foraging hike on April 25th, you will learn:

  • Wild plant field identification
  • Wild plant nutrition (Wild plants are, on average, more nutritious than their cultivated counterparts.  More nutrition = a healthier you.)
  • Harvesting methods
  • Culinary applications
  • Medicine making
  • Drying and storing methods

…and much more.

Details:

When:  Saturday April 25
Where:  North Park, Allegheny County Pennsylvania
Time:  1-3 PM
Investment:  $15 (kids 10 and under free)

Space for this hike is limited in order to maximize the learning environment, and registration with payment in advance is required. The exact meeting location will be provided upon registration. To register, please contact me (Adam) at

Thank you! I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
