Wild Food Fun and Education
The Midwest Wild Harvest Festival invites people of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. Held at the beginning of the fall harvest season, the festival is a celebration of the Midwest's bounty of wild food. The weekend combines recreation and education into an unforgettable experience.
Participants will learn about wild edibles and their uses from some of the most knowledgeable instructors and speakers in the United States. There will be activities for children and adults, field trips, presentations, demonstrations, a cooking contest, a potluck banquet, and lots of hands-on activities. You'll have a chance to interact with other foraging enthusiasts from around the region and beyond.

Keynote this year: Stephen Barstow E.S.M.
"Foraging, edible plant diversity in Norway and
the over 100 year old Norwegian Useful Plants Society"

And of course Sam Thayer will be there too!

​This year we even have the pleasure of working with Alan Bergo (Forager Chef) who will be heading up the kitchen.
