Sign-up is now open for three beginner foraging classes this spring in the Cascade foothills near Seattle. Each class will be a three-hour trail walk (2 miles, easy terrain) with an emphasis on identification and food preparation. We'll examine dozens of wild plants and fungi that can be used in the kitchen. Trailside discussion will include notes on life cycle, habitat, season, harvesting techniques, processing, cooking, recipes, and putting up. Maximum 12 per class. The cost is $35, which includes a copy of the book, Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager.

The dates are:
* Friday, March 25, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
* Saturday, April 9, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
* Monday, May 2, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

To sign up or request more information, please email: finspotcook@gmail.com
Group rates possible.

You should also post this on the Pacific Northwest Gardening forum (http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/f/region_pnw/all/). In addition, they have a pretty active gardening calendar (a sticky).

I'm not native to the area so I'm way behind the eight ball here. I'd sure love to learn what's out there, though. I'm always asking the locals about stuff.

I learned a lot of the foraging from my grandparents. Unfortunately, I'm not in the same area so I need to relearn all that. I am looking forward to my springtime morel hunt as well as finding sassafras. Baby steps, lol
