Wild edibles foraging tours or classes?

wild ramps by Flickr user Danielle Scott ccWith ramps and fiddleheads in season, Burnt My Fingers emails:

Could you ask your readers to recommend foraging strategies and likely spots? Also, does anyone do foraging tours that I could join in on? (Morels would also be interesting.)

Apparently there's a whole world of wild edibles out there, but it's the kind of thing where you definitely want to learn from someone who knows what their doing. And you want to really get it right, because getting it wrong could have serious consequences.

So, suggestion for foraging tours or classes? Please share!

Want this.

Rensselar Land Trust is hosting a one-time foraging walk led by Sean Rowe on May 10th (http://www.renstrust.org/)

I don't have a list of tours, but I can provide you with a short list of foragers to contact directly. http://goo.gl/QHMNtS

I do know that herbal medicine and foraging will be some of the workshops at the Little Notch Women's Weekend June 6-8.
Website attached! Lots more fun stuff happening too!

I am one of the organizers for the Woman's Weekend at Camp Little Notch and we have both a nature signs and medicine walk planned for the weekend of June 6-8. We will also be offering similar workshops at Camp Little Notch in the fall, we could add wild edibles, and are working on scheduling a few others in the Capital District area this summer and fall.

Just found an even better resource:

Have always been curious about these?
Where can i buy them locally?
