Revel in last year’s harvest at this immersive, hands-on evening of crafting foraged cocktails and light bites. Our freezers and pantries are teeming with wild-harvested goods from the 2022 season!

There will be appetizers offered at this program, made from a number of locally-foraged and sourced ingredients. While we cannot promise to accommodate every food allergy or dietary restriction, we will certainly try our best.

Program participants should meet at Krippendorf Lodge at our Rowe Woods location.
