Arrowhead Bike Farm
West Virginia and the Appalachian Mountains are a forager’s paradise. Join us for Fayetteville’s spring foraging event with our Spring Foraging Workshop & Hike on Saturday, May 11th at Arrowhead Bike Farm.
Spring is the perfect time to learn about the skills involved in foraging for wild food. Discover the delicacies that can be found in the woods. Roots, tubers, and shoots, greens, buds, and flowers are among the various plant structures that are available for harvesting. Follow a local legend the “Berry Man” Mitchell Dech as he leads our foraging hike. This event will be hands-on exploring the trails of Arrowhead and the surrounding property to discover, discuss, and learn about edible plants in their habitats. Come prepared with comfortable shoes for moderate hiking 2 miles. After the hike, we will gather for lunch on the bike farm.
