From Elderberries to Wild Figs

elderberriesI’m on the road for a last few weeks of summer travels before strapping in for my fall schedule of foraging tours and other workshops.

Along with the public offerings you’ll see there, I’ll be doing several private foraging tours for garden clubs, schools, etc. One guy even hired me to do a foraging tour on his property as a birthday present for his wife and her friends.
