In this off-site class at the Outdoor Discovery Center in Holland, Michigan, you'll learn about the abundance of “wild foods” in Southwest Michigan and discover how sustainable foraging can deepen your connection with the natural environment. Maggie Conklin ND BCDTN BCMH, Maven of Heirloom Academy and owner of LadyHawk Nutrition, will blend instruction in an outdoor classroom and guided walks to highlight the seasonal identification and ethnobotany of these plants and challenge notions of what many might view as weeds.

Note: Expect a fair amount of walking and standing. Bring a notebook and dress for the weather. Fee includes a snack, water bottle, boxed lunch, resources to guide future foraging endeavors, and all gratuities.
