Blandford Nature Center is hosting forgaing classes each season starting Thursday, May 10 with “Wild Foraging in May.” The class will take place at the visitor’s center and on the trails from 5 to 6:30 p.m. According to Blandford’s website, “We will discuss healthy and responsible ways to harvest nature’s bounty and experience the delicious flavors of spring.”
A summer foraging class is slated for June 28. This adult-level class is open to people ages 12+ and costs $10 for members, and $12 for non-members. Enrollment is limited to 30 so call to register, (616)735-6240.
Blandford’s Kristin Tindall helped out at an urban foraging workshop sponsored by OKT and The Bloom Collective last year. She will be back again August 12 to lead our free 2012 urban foraging workshop.
