Wild Food Wanders

We’re looking forward to another amazing season of learning, tending, gathering and tasting the abundant, endlessly diverse wild edible plants all around us–and to sharing all that with you!  Join Andy Gricevich to spend time in beautiful outdoor spaces and meet the tender greens of spring, the flowers and fruits of high summer, the nuts and fungi of fall, and much more.

As things begin to “open up” again, we’re once again offering scheduled foraging walks for groups of up to a dozen people.  Our walks are scheduled for three hours, and take place at various locations in and around Madison, Wisconsin.  Walks are $50 per participant.  Demand is high this year, so sign up soon!

For those who aren’t feeling comfortable being in groups with strangers–or who just didn’t sign up in time–we’re always happy to set up private walks, at the same rate (though we can definitely talk about longer or shorter times).  Just write to us at whatgotgathered@gmail.com to talk about scheduling!
