Winter Foraging: Wild Roots and Tubers

February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The TV shows ‘Survivor’ and ‘Alone’ are popular in our culture because these contestants are using survival skills that most people don’t know anything about.  There is a fascination with obtaining the skills to be TOTALLY self-sufficient and survive alone in the wild.

Have you wondered how people lived in the wild by foraging for food?  How did they know how to identify wild edibles in the forest?  This class is your opportunity to learn about winter foraging – a skill that can save your life!  Most importantly though, sustainable skills, like foraging, can be passed down from generation to generation.  These skills are not just for Scouts…

Winter Foraging:  Wild Roots and Tubers
Date:  Saturday, February 17, 2024
Time:  1:00 – 2:30 pm
Cost:  $40 per person which includes all instructions, and tastings








A good source for foraging in the winter months is the stores of plant energy in roots and tubers.

In the class, we’ll learn:

  1. which roots and tubers are edible
  2. how to identify them, and
  3. how to prepare them.  

Samples will include Dandelion Root Coffee and Daylily Tuber, Wild Onion, Crinkle Root Soup.  We’ll also learn how to make my favorite – Sassafras Tea.
