Just because it’s the dead of winter doesn’t mean you have to stop foraging! Now is the time for evergreens to shine, as they are now easy to spot! These trees have a long history of use to treat coughs and colds and traditionally supplied much-needed vitamins during the winter. Today many can be found in gourmet recipes. Learn which evergreens to harvest and which to avoid as we cover identification of different evergreen species, and foraging etiquette. If you have foraged at Irvine before you know there is usually something to taste! Age 16+ Great for anyone interested in learning to forage – all skill levels welcome.
