Want to learn more about eating wild foods, what's safe and what isn't, and the benefits of wild foods? We're hosting a walking tour with Nathaniel Whitmore as the guide. He has extensive knowledge in wild foods and medicinal herbs. He's been exploring the woods since he was a teenager and learning all he can. He's become an educator in the field of wild edibles and conducts classes and walking tours regularly. You can read more about Nathaniel's extensive background through his bio page of his website.
