Local Classes & Walks
Check here periodically for new classes and pop up foraging walks! Many of the classes are here at Bella Vista Farm in Monroe, Georgia but sometimes we will meet at another local farm or park depending on what we are doing. CHECK the EVENT PAGE for current classes!!
I also do private botanical property walks on YOUR property. Together we discover what kind of beneficial weeds and mushrooms you may have growing. Contact me below for a quote, depending on your location.
