Edible Wild Plant Guided Tours, Classes, and Forays

In all my classes, kids under 12 come for free (so as long as they are supervised).

 

Wild Edible Plants Foray  May 18, 2014, Sunday 10am-12pm (Sienna Ranch, Lafayette) $40 – Join Kevin Feinstein (Feral Kevin) on a guided tour of local edible wild plants in the hills East of the Caldecott tunnel.   Sample the promise of what the cool rainy season brings to our area in terms of foraging.  In this class, as we have permission from the land owner, we are able to actually forage for many things!    So not only bring your learning hat, but your bags and clippers, too

Wild Food Walk in Mega Diverse Garden and Surrounding Open Space  July 5, 2014, Saturday 10am-12pm (Lafayette, CA) $40 — Join me (Kevin Feinstein) on a food walk in an amazing garden that I’ve worked with for over 9 years in Lafayette. It’s the most diverse piece of land per area that I’ve seen anywhere in Contra Costa County. Sample many different types of plants (take any surplus home) and get tons of info on local plants and wild plants. We’ll also venture out into the surrounding hills to see what’s growing in the wild that is good to eat.

new! Local Mushroom Foraging Primer, Tasting, and Q and A  TBA, 7pm-9pm (Berkeley location TBA) $50 –Bring mushrooms to be identified if you have them!  Mingle, bring some wine, sample some cooked wild mushrooms, and then sit down for a presentation by Kevin Feinstein that aims to serve as  Crash Course in local mushroom foraging.  This is the primer for beginners that I wish I would have had when I first started learning about mushrooms.  This evening presentation and mingling session (lots of Q and A) will take place a cozy and central location on Berkeley, CA.  Great event after early dinner, or before a late one!

    Hey…what a great find. Thanks for inspiring people to really pay attention to their surroundings!
    We used to eat roasted bay nuts, but after a while I lost the taste for them. Great vid on bay nuts.
    Happy Foraging

    I forgot to add…in my commune days (way back)…I used to live on lentils supplemented by large quantities of miners’ lettuce, puffballs and fiddleheads (taste like walnuts)
    In those days I lived on no money and VERY little possessions. Sweet simple times.
    THANKS!

    I came across your web site and love what you are doing.
    I live in a very rual area on 15 acers surronunded by timber land in the bluffs of the mississippi river.
    while growing up here my parents always ate the more common wild greens. I am vegan and wish to eat closer to the land. Foraging for my food is what i enjoy. I know there are many many types of plant that are edibal here. Im just not sure of all of them. Burdock and sting weed (nettles) are some of my favirots. Im looking forward to mid summer so i can enduldge on the thistles. If you can give me any insight on things i might/should be looking for in the timber would be wonderful. There is just so much of it here. It is all organic since we do not spray any of the timmber for over 50 years.
    Love your stuff!!!
