2018 Foraging Classes

beaked hazelnut smallThis year is going to be busier than ever. I’ve been asked to teach classes in various places around the Maritime provinces, and we intend to maintain 3 to 6 classes at our backwoods homestead, too. Because the schedule is so heavy, I am going to start taking registrations as of today. I believe everyone should have an opportunity to learn, so as always, the cost is low. Classes at the homestead will be $50 for the day, payable at time of registration to hold your¬†place.

Classes are limited to 12 persons per class to allow all students time for questions and focus.

Participants must be adults or children over 12 with guardians.

Three to four miles of hiking over old dirt roads, meadows and woods are required.

Because of new demands on my time for these classes, I will have to be firm about my booking policy. In previous years, I have allowed persons to shift to different classes or cancel even with only a few days notice, even though our policy is that no changes can be made with less than 30 days notice. I will not be able to do that this year. There are just too many classes in the works to juggle that. As always, you can reschedule to a different class or cancel up til 30 days prior to the class. After that, all bookings are final.
