If any of you all want to meet up in the Olympia area at any point I would be really interested, there's a lot of wild spaces around here with plenty of foraging potential..I'm really curious to learn what wild food there is this time of year, before planted food starts becoming available.
Saturday April 25th from 3:30 to 5:30 I will lead a tour of "wild edible plants of the woods" at Seattle's Interlaken Park on north Capitol Hill. I want 10 attendees only; 6 have already signed up. I charge $10 ($9.18 plus .82 sales tax). It was planned right before dinnertime with the idea that participants could gather food for salads or stir-fries. Should you desire to gather nettles, please bring gloves, a cutting implement and a bag or sack.
In May and onward I likely will lead more tree and plant tours; my website calendar (http://www.arthurleej.com) will indicate the dates and locations. Incidentally, sorry that our erstwhile association of Seattle-area foragers "went to sleep," as it were. I had hoped for a non-centralized forum or community --but practically everything we did had been scheduled by myself, Jean Gauthier (now in Arizona) or Melanie Barker.
If you post this in the events forum, you'll probably get a lot more readers. Plus, I know that Jocelyn puts this sort of thing in her super puget sound eco calendar - I just checked and your event isn't there, but there are about a dozen events already scheduled for that day.
