Learn how to incorporate the healing and nourishment of abundant local flora into your everyday life through teas, sodas, tinctures, delicious food, and more! In this popular hands-on field study, we’ll cover identification, ethical gathering, preparation, and usage of foraged food and plant medicine.

To celebrate my birthday, I invite folks to contribute towards my scholarship fund which allows me to provide access to classes for folks with limited financial resources. Thanks for helping me realize my vision of making wild food and medicine knowledge available for all! I’m so grateful (yep, that’s young Planty Kim showing my excitement) to my generous friends who have given over the last three years (amounts ranging from $5-$500)! Thanks to you, I’ve been able to share scholarship support with many eager students! Just click the yellow donate button at the bottom of this page…
