ADVENTURE: Desert WILD! An Immersive Wild Food Adventure
March 12-13, 2022
Central Arizona
Enrolled students of The Wild Path are eligible for discount

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 over the campfire. Rest under the rural desert moon-less sky for stargazing and sit around the campfire to share stories. Bring an instrument if you play one! The following day we’ll share some more wild-inspired meals and learn about desert medicines to craft our own healing remedies to take back home.
