Summer City Foraging

You don’t need to trek into the wilderness to harvest wild edibles—you can do it right here in the city! Join Maria Wesserle of Four Season Foraging to explore the urban environment in search of wild foods.

The class will focus on easy to identify flowers and fruits, starting right on ASI’s campus. Participants will also discuss other wild edibles found along the way as well as the cultural heritage of foraging in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries.

Students should wear clothing appropriate for the weather (rain or shine!) and be prepared to walk up to 10–12 city blocks. Suitable for ages 18+, or 11–17 accompanied by a registered adult.

This class is also offered in May, in a similar format with a focus on different seasonal plants.
