Eating Evergreens

White Pine (Pinus strobus) Needles

White Pine (Pinus strobus) Needles

Just because it’s the dead of winter doesn’t mean you have to stop foraging! Evergreens are easy to spot amongst the otherwise grey landscape, and they have a long history of treating coughs and colds, and supplying much-needed vitamins A and C during the winter. Join Maria Wesserle and Four Season Foraging to learn which evergreens to harvest and which to avoid. Also sample delicious tea and infused vinegar!

Meet in the kitchen of 4200 Cedar (see map here.) There will be a sign that reads “Four Season Foraging.” We will begin in the kitchen, then take a short jaunt outside to look at some trees, and end in the kitchen with pine switchel and hot tea!

Sliding scale $10-$40. Scholarships are available. This event is wheelchair accessible. For more details, please contact info@fourseasonforaging.com.

**Space is limited. Please register before Wednesday, December 13th, 12pm by following this link.**

12:00pm to 2:00pm

Corner of Midtown Greenway and James Ave S. in Minneapolis

**Registration is closed**

The days may be getting shorter and the weather colder, but that doesn’t mean the foraging season has come to a close! On the contrary-- fall is the time to harvest roots, nuts, and late-season fruits. Join Maria Wesserle of Four Season Foraging as we amble along the Midtown Greenway and learn what bounty fall has to offer the urban forager. We will discuss the identification, harvest, and preparation of a variety of wild fruits, including chokeberries, nannyberries, and rosehips.

Meet at the corner of the Midtown Greenway (north of Lagoon Ave.) and James Ave S. in Minneapolis. (Click here for map.) Look for a sign that reads “Four Season Foraging.” Please be on time, as we will be wandering around and you may not find us if you're late! 

Sliding scale $10-$40. Scholarships are available. This event is wheelchair accessible. For more details, please contact info@fourseasonforaging.com.
