Foraging Hike


Join local wild food enthusiast and forager, Dan Lipow, owner of The Foraged Feast, for a moderately paced hike through the South Mountain Reservation as we focus on seasonally-available wild food. Dan will share his knowledge of edible plants and fungi as frequent stops are made to learn about and collect nature’s bounty. We are likely to spot mushrooms and many spring greens such as greenbrier, sassafras, and garlic mustard.


- For the hike, we recommend sturdy shoes or hiking boots, as well as plenty of water and a snack.

- For the wild food collection, we recommended small collection bags or baskets, as well as outdoor gloves and a pocket knife.
