    Anonymous review on 5/29/2023
    Steve and Violet were immensely knowledgeable and I recommend this walk to anyone curious about connecting with the plants in their path. As an amateur forager, I left with several new plant allies to name and work with as food and medicine. Disclaimer: brace yourself for some seriously corny jokes :-)

    Anonymous review on 10/4/2022
    This could not have been any better. Mr. Wildman is about as entertaining and informative as any instructor ever. Bring a friend and take a walk around the park eating the edible plants you walk past un-knowingly every day. Make sure to bring water and a lunch unless you want to subsist on gout weed alone! Bring a plastic or paper bag if you want to keep some plants for recipes. We made a great pesto from the greens we collected.

    Wildman Steve is a wonderful naturalist and guide. He shared so much with us, lore, botany, stories, herbalism. I learned a lot. I have been very eager to learn about foraging and he set me up.
