Leap into spring and join our first foraging walk followed by a tasting of the natural edible bounty and tea pairing by Tay Tea.
In collaboration with the Boy Scouts of America, we will walk their pristinely protected land in Tusten, NY along the Delaware River. Nathaniel Whitmore, local naturalist/herbalist/alchemist, and TaraMarie Perri, founder/director of Perri Institute for Mind and Body, will be our guides. Each step along the way will be illuminated by the senses as we dive deeper into nature.
The post-walk tasting and tea will be hosted at Smokey Belles Catskills Le Petite Cabine in Narrowsburg, NY. We will gather at the charming and rustic woodland retreat overlooking a trout stream and learn how to clean, taste, and process our seasonal field foraging.
Artist Sara Moffat of LDBA Brooklyn will provide artist’s field supplies and share the naturalist’s way to document, draw, and watercolor the botanicals we find.
