Foraging Weekend with Wild Food Girl – June 7 -9 – CLASS IS FULL
This weekend-long class, with two optional overnights, will explore edible wild plants in a variety of habitats—from riparian zones around the Platte River and mountain drainages, to spruce/fir and ponderosa pine forests, to disturbed, weedy areas that host plants you might find in our local urban areas.
- LOCATION: Glen Isle Resort—A recently re-opened, historic resort on 150 acres along the Platte River in Bailey, CO. Semi-primitive camping and (limited) lodging available to participants.
- DATES/TIMES: Friday, June 7 (6 – 8 pm); Saturday June 8 (8 am – 8 pm); & Sunday, June 9 (8 am – 2 pm)
- COST: $300/person (with semi-primitive camping or drive-in option)
CLASS DETAILS: We will spend about 50% of our time in the field learning edible wild plants—including field identification, safe and sustainable foraging practices, what parts to use, and hands-on foraging practice where possible. About 30% of our time will be spent at the class cabin, cleaning and preparing wild food, and we’ll incorporate foraged food into our meals. This is an opportunity to practice working with wild food in the kitchen, but we will not be eating an exclusively wild food diet. The remainder of our time is dedicated to class discussions and presentations. Class size is limited to 7-8 participants to ensure a good student/teacher ratio and personalized experience.
ABOUT THE ACCOMMODATIONS: The class campsite is semi-primitive (meaning there is a portable toilet), so you can spend the 2 nights there or drive in each day. Please note this is a resort, so there will be other people on the grounds. Our campsite is in a picturesque spot, but it is near enough to highway 285 that some traffic noise is to be expected. There is a full restroom up the hill in the class cabin. There is also one (1) remaining spot available in the class cabin (add $40 to $75 depending on the room) available on a first-come, first-served basis; please indicate your interest on the contact form below and we can discuss that option. Or, contact Glen Isle directly to reserve a separate cabin while they’re still available.
