Sustainable Forest Foraging

August 21 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm

$30 – $60

Join the Low-Impact Forestry program as we learn from Sarah Robinson from Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District and Dustin Small from Bissel Brothers Three Rivers about identifying and sustainably harvesting forest foods. Together, they will teach us about common edible plants found in Maine’s forests – right here in Unity at the MOFGA campus.

Please bring weather- and woods-appropriate clothes and shoes (muck boots or hiking boots may be best!), water, personal snacks, and anything you need to be comfortable walking through the woods – on and off trail. This field day will involve uneven terrain and navigating woody plants and material.

REGISTER HERE

Please feel free to pay what you can afford on this scale, keeping in mind our goals are to cover our costs, pay instructors and extend this learning opportunity to many in our community. Recommended price for MOFGA members is $40; recommended general admission price is $50. *Participants in MOFGA’s Journeyperson program and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) are welcome to register at no cost.
