Delve deep into the rich tapestry of nature’s bounty as we explore the diverse flora that thrives in our coastal forests. Each workshop is meticulously curated to reflect the changing seasons, offering participants a unique opportunity to connect with the land and learn sustainable harvesting practices.

🌱 Spring Foraging Workshop (March – May)
Embark on a journey of exploration as we uncover the treasures of early spring. Wander through woodland groves in search of Usnea, a lichen with potent medicinal properties. Learn to identify Douglas Fir and Western Hemlock, along with delicate blooms like Pacific Bleeding Hearts and Lungwort. Harness the rejuvenating power of Horsetail and the nutritional richness of Nettle, perfect for early spring nourishment.

🌸 Mid-Spring Foraging Workshop (May – June)
As spring blossoms into full bloom, we continue our quest for botanical wonders. Seek out the fragrant blooms of Bald Hip Rose, the cascading beauty of Oregon Grape, and the resilient presence of Devil’s Club. Delight in the versatility of Dogwood flowers and bark, and discover the subtle sweetness of Woodland Strawberry leaves, all while deepening your understanding of their medicinal and culinary uses.

Discover the interconnectedness of plants and their ecosystems, as we gather knowledge and sustenance from the land.
