What we're about
The Wild Foodies of Philly, www.WildFoodies.org, is an educational foraging group dedicated to sharing with the public, individuals, groups, schools, non-profits, and businesses the many uses of wild plants for food, fiber, medicine, and more.
Wild Foodies tours are "educational only" - no foraging, no tasting. If we invite someone to taste a plant and they have a bad reaction, that could disrupt the entire tour; plus, many parks don't allow foraging of any kind, anyway. Tour guides have various levels of knowledge and are not certified nor insured/ensured. It is up to everyone to do their own "due diligence" before eating a wild edible.
Tours generally run from March to November, although we do make exceptions weather permitting. Learn more at http://www.wildfoodies.org/FORAGERS.htm.
The Wild Foodies is not a non-profit. If you would like to support our mission you may send your donation to "Wild Foodies" in care of Lynn Landes LLC (address below). Your donation will go towards our costs and advertising on billboards, online, and print.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Lynn Landes, Founder
