West Virginia and the Appalachian Mountains are a forager’s paradise. Join us for Fayetteville’s first Foraging event with our Fall Foraging Workshop & Hike on Saturday September 30th at Arrowhead Bike Farm. Fall is the perfect time to learn about the skills involved in foraging for wild food. Discover the delicacies that can be found in the woods. Roots, tubers, and shoots, greens, buds, and flowers are among the various plant structures that are available for harvesting. Follow a local legend the “Berry Man” Mitchel Dech as he leads our foraging hike. This event will be hands on exploring the trails of Arrowhead and the surrounding property to discover, discuss, and learn about edible plants in their habitats. Come prepared with comfortable shoes for moderate 2-mile hike. After the hike gather back on the deck for lunch on the bike farm. Enjoy some locally foraged snacks and tea.
