On Friday, April 7, the Foodways initiative/ Community Cultures Through Food is beginning our spring season (Wild Foods) with an Intro to Foraging.  A 2-hour foraging walk from noon – 2:00 pm at the Tryon Creek State Natural Area will be led by Erika Ironwood.  

Erika will introduce participants to a variety of wild edible and medicinal plants that grow right here in our backyards. Erika has been a forager and herbalist for 17 years and has been teaching publicly for five years. She is committed to demystifying foraging and to encouraging stewardship of wild places in the Pacific NW. 

Attendance is open to everyone (but adults only, please). Space is limited; registration is required. (Note: this class requires good shoes and weather-appropriate gear!)
