Fall Foraging Workshop

  • Saturday, October 12, 2019, 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Come explore the Siuslaw Model Forest and learn about the value of woodlands and fields in a new way. Presenters Rob Handel and Tracey Testo will be your guides to discovering wild edibles in your surroundings. Participants will learn what is available on a seasonal basis as well as how to collect food without disturbing or endangering a plant population. Recommendations will also be given on how to safely collect food with the help of local resources and experts. Following the walk, we will move inside for a cooking lesson with Chef Rob where you will learn how to incorporate these wild foods into a meal. Locally foraged goods will be made available for samples and snacking during a Q and A to wrap up this fabulous day. Foraging is a great way to get to know your land as a new resource for local foods, can be a wonderful family activity and comes with a greater understanding of our interactions with the natural world. 

Presenters: Rob Handel, Executive Chef of Heather Ridge Farm & Tracey Testo, CCE Program Coordinator
