Here are a few recent ones:

Wild Mustard Greens

Did you know that many of the vegetables we eat–from kale to broccoli to arugula–are in the Mustard family? There are many more edible mustards in the wild, and spring is the season to gather their abundant, fresh greens. Learn to recognize and use wild mustards today!

Wild Onions & Garlic

Ever wondered about wild onions and garlic–where to find them, and how to safely harvest and use them? In this class we will learn native and non-native Allium species, including how to tell them from poisonous “lookalikes,” how to harvest them sustainably, and more!

Poisonous Plants

Which wild plants are poisonous? How will I recognize them? How toxic are they? In this class, we answer these questions and more while learning some of the most common poisonous plants like poison hemlock, water hemlock, death camas, and false hellebore.

And a few favorites:

Intro to Edible Weeds

So many “weeds” are edible and nutritious! Find them in your yard or garden, and you will have free organic greens for a lifetime. This class introduces 6 edible weeds in the U.S. and much of the world, as well as related species, when to pick, and what to do with them.

Wild Berries I

Are you wondering what berries are on your hike? This class covers huckleberries, serviceberries, currants and gooseberries, strawberries, and raspberries. The focus is on the Rocky Mountains, but we talk about related berries and their lookalikes in other parts of the country too.

Intro to Colorado Mushrooms

This introductory class covers 5 major edible mushrooms of Colorado and the Rocky Mountains: porcini, puffballs, oyster mushrooms, wood ears, and hawk’s wings. We discuss safety topics including similar-looking mushrooms to avoid, and where and when to pick.

What people say

Laura & Hunter


“We watched this replay and went straight outside! We confidently found 6 different mushroom species that you’ve taught us, including king boletes, after hunting pretty unsuccessfully for a couple seasons. Amazing! Thanks for sharing your knowledge in such an accessible way. You’re a treasure of a teacher! Things we particularly appreciated: having the slides to reference back to, suggestions for other resources, as well as the photos of what the shroomies look like in their habitat from head height.”

Erin Grodnick


“I can’t thank you enough for our incredible adventure. When we got home we had so much fun turning our foraged finds into a fabulous dish: salad of lamb’s quarters with mustard chiffonade, thistle and fireweed stems, mustard blossoms and paintbrush petals; topped with roasted spruce tip crostini; spread with fireweed-garlic cream cheese. It was delicious! Our day on a plate.”
