About this service

For over seven years I've been studying the useful yet often overlooked plants growing right under your feet, in your back yard, at the local park, and in the woods. I am especially passionate about foraging the urban and suburban landscape as a practice of resiliency - there is healthy, nutritious food available all around us!

During this re-wilding adventure you can expect to encounter new plant allies and learn uses and facts about familiar residents. I will offer methods of preparation, identification and harvesting tips, discuss ecology, harvesting guidelines, and ethics. There is plenty to find throughout the year here in the PNW, be ready to to taste and sample no matter the season.

You can chose where we explore and who comes with. We can begin in your backyard and make our way down the block, go to your favorite dog park, or scan a summer picnic or hiking spot. Bring up to three friends or family members.

Expect to do some walking. We are not likely to put on much more than a mile, but we will be on our feet for the duration of the foray. Bring what you need to be comfortable (water, snacks). You should also being a few reusable or compostable bags, gloves, a pair of garden snips or scissors and a small garden trowel or Hori Hori.

I am not a medical professional or a certified clinical herbalist! Though I have accumulated information and personal experience about the healing properties of local flora I encourage you to research any claims I make during our time together. Memory recall is fallible and bodies are unique! I am not qualified to give medical advice. Additionally, DO NOT consume plants you have not for sure, 100%, positively identified.
