Foraging Within the City Limits

  • Ingebretsen's 1605 East Lake Street Minneapolis, MN, 55407 United States (map)

Join us for a very special springtime foraging event with Sam Thayer and Maria Wesserle!

The practice of foraging plants for edible and medicinal purposes is often associated with rural and wilderness areas, but did you know that many delicious wild edibles can be found in cities? Join Ingebretsen's, local forager Maria Wesserle, and celebrated author Sam Thayer as we walk around the neighborhood and explore what wild edibles and medicinals spring has to offer. Plants we will probably encounter include garlic mustard, burdock, cattail, nettle, dandelion, and many others! We will discuss identification, harvesting, and cooking techniques. You'll head home with a newfound appreciation for the urban environment!

Cost: $55. To register, please call Ingebretsen’s at 612-729-9333 and reserve your place with a credit card. If you have questions, please email

This class will start and end at Ingebretsen’s classroom, 1605 E. Lake Street. The rest of the time we will be walking, so please wear comfortable shoes, bring a water bottle and a notepad and pen. You’ll be sure to take a lot of notes!

After the event, Sam will sign and sell his books.
