Learn how to establish a wild food garden from author and homesteader Suzanne Shires. For many, Foraging for food often starts with picking a basket of berries or harvesting dandelion greens for a salad. Then, one by one, we learn new plants and add them to our wild treks. There are nuts, greens, flowers, and fruit, and delicious. These wild food plants are often more nutritious than the domesticated vegetables growing in our gardens.

In this workshop you will learn how to make foraging easier by propagating wild food into your own garden. From trellising wild berries to sowing a patch of edible wild greens, you will discover ways to make foraging easier, and more fun, while taking your food security to the next level.
