Wild Food Workshops

Workshops are single day events, typically 3 to 5 hours onsite. They can involve one or more of the following activities: identifying, sampling, harvesting, processing or cooking edible plants, sea vegetables or shellfish. Some may be indoor slide presentations when the subject warrants it. We offer about 22 Oregon events each year starting in March and running through October. Our Home page only lists upcoming events.

Wild Food Rendezvous

Rendezvous are 4 day wild food learning events offered in May and June. They run from late Friday to Monday noon. Participants are immersed in all activities from identifying, gathering, and processing, to cooking wild plants (as well as seavegetables and shellfish if it is a coastal Rendezvous). People either sleep in tents, campers, or in a lodge if one is available. Modern kitchen facilities are used and we feast on what we gather. These are transformative events.
