Bay Area A Walk on the Wildside

Seasonal Harvest Series with Mia Andler

What if there were no grocery stores, no factories producing mass amounts of processed foods, no restaurants. What would we eat?

Take a walk into another time where food literally appears at your feet and experience the abundance of your extended backyard through the mindset of the hunter gatherer.

Whether you are an experienced primitive skills enthusiast or just heard about the idea of eating a wild plant for the first time, these walks are a fun way to share knowledge and meet other interested folks in the area, while enjoying a beautiful morning stroll. Each walk, lead by naturalist Mia Andler and guest experts, will focus on a seasonal topic.
