A Ride on the Wild Side


By Reservation
Maximum of 6pp

Privately experience and gather a taste for the lost art of foraging. Lead by one of San Luis Obispo County's recognized forager, our own Eric Olson.  Eric will introduce you to the county's microclimates and share the history of this wildcraft handed down to him by his family for two generations.


Learn to identify basic edible herbs and vegetation as well as poisonous or misleading flora, signs/indicators of natural springs, as well as gaining understanding of the medicinal elements and health benefits afforded through natural herbs, weeds, and shrubs including the spiritual properties of white sage and mugwort used by Native Americans and locals for years purposed towards spiritual cleansing and inducing dreams.  

Eric shares his culinary use of some of these found treasures using them in a season dish, cocktail or as garnishes.  This two-hour experience is guaranteed to be unique every time and of course the seasonality has a very distinctive impact on the treasures encountered.  Email us with questions or to make your reserve.
