Wild Mushroom Crash Course and Tour:

Join Kevin Feinstein (Feral Kevin) on a guided tour of local wild mushrooms! Get the crash course on the local fungal foraging scene and explore the area, seeing what’s fruiting in our short but often intense mushroom season! This is a great class for absolute beginners!

Tours $50 per person and are 10:00am to 12:30pm (although sometimes we get excited and keep going):


New dates for next season will be released in October 2020.


Farm Tour and Tasting. TBA 10am-12:00pm. Here in the Bay Area, we have a late harvest season. Come taste many unusual crops from the farm, and see some edible wild plants as well. This is by far my favorite class! Only this time of year are there fruits like these to taste!

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

    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.

    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.

    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!!!
