June 4th

MILKWEED SHOOTS

Like the young day lily shoots, milkweed shoots can also be used as a substitute for asparagus. They are easily prepared by mulitiple boilings which removes the bitterness and allows the wonderful flavours to seep through. We'll be harvesting these healthy wild edibles along with fiddleheads, pheasant back mushrooms, nettles, burdock root and more along beautiful trails only minutes from Stratford.

There's a reason Travel and Leisure Magazine listed Puck's Plenty as one of the top foraging spots in the world. Find out why!

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person

BURDOCK ROOT

Let's start with the medicinal benefits of this incredible plant. Burdock contains inulin which helps reduce blood-sugar level, body-weight, and cholesterol. It also contains many vitamins such as C and E, powerful antioxidants that combat infections, cancer and neurologic conditions. On the culinary side, it can be used in soups, stews and salads or, after it is tenderized, a delicious snack. Try it with humus. It's amazing!

Of course, there are other delicious wild edibles to harvest along the way. Wild leek bulbs, wild ginger root, healthy nettles, cattail shoots and pheasant back mushrooms (one of the few fungi you can eat raw)

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person

WOOD NETTLE BEER WORKSHOP

Last year the common nettle suffered a blight and it showed itself at our Nettle Beer Workshoop. Most of the batches were flat and not very tasty but not so with the Wood Nettle. A vibrant cousin to the Slender Nettle, the blight had no effect on this amazing specimen and it proved its worth in the final product. This year's workshop will focus solely on the Wood Nettle. So get your car boys and your funnels and, oh yes, don't forget your gloves. This plant makes it presence know, you can count on that.

Marriot International listed Puck's Plenty as one of the "Top 10 Adventures to Have this Summer". Join us on the trails and find out why.

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person

WILD WATERCRESS

The next time you visit your local grocer take note of the watercress, especially the colour. It's a dull, dark green. Compare that with Mother Nature's brand. The richness stands out in both its appearance and taste. Join us on trails only 20 minutes from Stratford where you will learn to harvest this wonderful plant with sustainability in mind. We'll also search beautiful woodland for wild leek bulbs, slender and wood nettles, day lily buds, pheasant back mushrooms and more. It's an adventure you won't forget. Just ask Marriot International and Travel and Leisure Magazine.

Start time: 10:00 am
Where: 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 2S9
Cost: $35.00/person

Happy father's Day!

A reprise of our Nettle Beer Workshop from June 11th, we're collecting more wood nettles and handing out nettle beer recipes to all the dads. Plus we'll continue our foraging for other fine wild edibles such as wild leek bulbs, day lily shoots and flower buds, wild watercress, pheasant back mushrooms and perhaps, just perhaps, the first of the season's white, fleshy oyster mushrooms. Trying to send Dad home happy. Join us on trails only 20 minutes from Stratford along some of the most beautiful forest trails Southwestern Ontario has to offer.

Start time: 10:00 am

It's berry picking time and if we're graced by the right conditions we'll have a bumper crop of black raspberries to harvest under the new Summer Sun. We won't stop there, however. There will be spicy day lily buds, wild leek bulbs, wild watercress, pheasant back mushrooms (you can eat these raw!) and more.

There's an old fallen hardwood tree off one of the trails we use and this gracious tree has been yielding a constant crop of Summer Oyster Mushrooms from late June through September for three years now. Anyone familiar with wild mushrooms knows the Oyster is one of the finest, sweetest tasting fungi to be found. We're heading out to the forest only 20 minutes from Stratford to search for these as well as the tantalizing Pheasant Back Mushroom, Day Lily Flower Buds, Wild Watercress and more.
