Blackberry Brigade at Horton Grove Nature Preserve on June 29th!

Join us for a fun morning foraging blackberries in a beautiful natural location – all for a great cause and a great beer!

The 6th annual Blackberry Brigade will take place at Triangle Land Conservancy’s Horton Grove Nature Preserve on Saturday, June 28th.

Piedmont Picnic Project will be on site to guide you to the best berry picking spots and offer tips on how to nab the best berries with the least scratches. Compete with other pickers on who can get the most berries during the event, and win a prize if you pull in the highest berry poundage! Enjoy cold wild foraged sodas made and served by Piedmont Picnic as you pick.

Reserve your free spot here.

All berries that are picked and donated will be given to Trophy Brewing Co to create a yummy new blackberry beer inspired by this event – with a portion of proceeds going back to TLC! That’s right — your berries will contribute to a delicious beer on tap at Trohpy Brewing — and benefit a great organization!

Join us for this fun and juicy event!
