Foraging in Tryon CreekState Natural Area
On Friday, April 7, the Foodways Initiative/Community Cultures Through Food is beginning its spring season with an "Intro to Foraging," a two-hour foraging walk led by Erika Ironwood. The walk begins 12 noon at the Tryon Creek State Natural Area.

Erika will introduce participants to a variety of wild edible and medicinal plants that grow right here in our backyards. She has been a forager and herbalist for 17 years and has been teaching publicly for five years. Erika is committed to demystifying foraging and to encouraging stewardship of wild places in the Pacific Northwest.

Attendance is open to adults only and space is limited, so registration is required. To register, email and include "Foodways: Foraging Walk" in the subject line. Note: This class requires good shoes and weather-appropriate gear!
