With the recent rains, ForageSF founder Iso Rabins says they are now seeing tons of delicious mushrooms as they lead their safe, socially distanced foraging walks through the Santa Cruz Mountains, Sonoma, and Mendocino.

“With so many people cooped up in their houses, and everything in cities closed, there’s never been a better time to get out into the woods,” he says. “Foraging is a great activity to do with kids, and we all know nature is the best booster of the immune system.”

Even if you can’t get outside, you can get a taste of the wild in the Forage Box, a subscription collection of mushrooms and other wild foraged foods like ramps, fiddleheads, seaweed, and sea beans. Items change with the seasons and each box includes tips and tricks to help care for and cook your foraged feast.

“With each box we give lots of info on the products, as well as handpicked recipes to get you started,” says Rabins. “Its a great way to discover wild foods that you may not have known what to do with when you’ve seen them before and a really great family cooking time adventure!”

Winter and spring classes, both online and in person, focus on mushroom foraging, medicinal mushrooms, and foraging to boost health and immunity. Info: here
