The UT Arboretum Society is sponsoring a Wild Edibles Foray Workshop at the UT Arboretum Auditorium and Sharp Program Shelter on Saturday, April 28th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Participants will learn the skills of wild foraging as well as how to prepare the harvest from two experienced foragers, Pandy English and Windy Hunter. These skilled foragers of woods, fields and streams have taught wild edibles to many groups. Everything from bread, preserves, teas, tonics, poultices, dyes, greens, roots, dried fruits, nuts and natural medicinals will be shared. In addition, safe identification will be stressed.

This event will take place rain or shine. Participants should dress appropriately and this includes walking boots, pants, gloves, rain gear and insect repellent. Participants must pre-register by Monday, April 23. The cost is $25 for UT Arboretum Society members and $30 for non-members. The class is limited to 30 participants, so early registration is strongly encouraged as the class is expected to fill up quickly. This is a program for ages 18 and above unless attending with a parent and approved at registration.


Unless otherwise noted, all events are open to the public.
