Foraging Walks, Presentations, and Classes


 The 2023 foraging season is certainly under way here in southern New England. We have already been out in a few libraries and community centers giving presentations, along with private presentations for garden clubs throughout the state. Our schedule can be very busy and the most updated listing is up on our Facebook page and we also have an informational listing at the Connecticut Library Consortium page at


We are always happy to work with your local library, nature center, land trust, home school group, or even your own private group for a foraging talk or walk, just contact us at for pricing information.

Most of our in-person presentations take 55 minutes, have corresponding educational handouts, and we try to bring some representative plant or mushroom materials for hands-on learning. We can provide program descriptions, a bio, and promotional support on our social media page for public events.
