Fruits and flowers everywhere, but not a bite to eat? This class will help you reconnect with the land by learning foraging skills and how to ID native plants that are safe for your plate, such as prickly pear and Texas persimmon. Not only will you be primed to dress your salad and fill your snack bag with local native plants, but learning to forage will make your forays into nature richer as you tune in to the land around you.

This is not a series. Individual classes are offered Saturday, February 27 and Sunday, March, 21, 9 – 11 a.m.

Space is limited and registration is required. This virtual event will be held via Zoom.

Register for March 21

$25 per person (one session)
