We are berry heavy in Western North Carolina. While our berries might not be as large as the ones found in the grocery store the experience of hiking through wilderness trails to find them provides quite the treat. After the hike we will come back to the NCOA Campground and office to enjoy some local Appalachian treats, homemade biscuits with various jams, camp fire cobbler and pie. The event will also sample local wine and cheese!
When: Stay Tuned for 2021 dates.
Who is this for: Anyone! Kids 8 and under are free! While kids are always welcome, please be mindful as we do not want children leaving these classes to forage on their own without supervision! It is important to note: some of the plants we learn about have look a-likes that can be deadly. This is why education is key!
Kids 8 and under are free but pay $8 for food tasting
Where: Trips meet at the NCOA outpost in Bakersville, NC and take place at several locations locally.
