Desert WILD! Foraging Adventure in the Sonoran Desert

April 13-16, 2022

Explore the edible and medicinal abundance of the Sonoran Desert in the springtime. Our journey will cover the entire foraging process, from desert to table. We will explore the surrounding foothills, canyons and flowing creeks to identify the local wild edible and medicinal plants, learn sustainable and ethical harvesting practices, preparation, preservation, cooking and plating techniques.

All plant-based, organic meals and supplies included. We’ll hike through the forests of saguaros, gather wild foods and learn how to properly process them. Returning to camp, we’ll collectively cook a foraged dinner and dessert. Rest and relax under the rural desert sky for stargazing and sit around the campfire to share stories. Bring an instrument if you play one! We will take day trips out to explore other areas, such as higher elevations in Sedona and learn how to craft our own desert medicine.
