To celebrate our 100 Miles in 100 Days greenway walking and foraging campaign, we are having our first Wild History Walking Tour of the spring on a beautiful (and historic!) stretch of the Raleigh Greenway. Tickets available HERE!
We’ll be taking a walking tour starting from Milburnie Park (5428 Allen Dr., Raleigh) continuing along the Neuse River Trail of the Raleigh Greenway to the Milburnie Dam (about 1.5 miles total there and back). During the tour, we’ll teach you about the edible greens growing in the area as well as about the history of that particular place in Raleigh. Here is a preview of what to expect along the way!
This is a beginner level foraging class so we will review foraging basics (including rules and etiquette), and we’ll send you away with a solid knowledge of a handful of practical plants you will enjoy incorporating into your table. The walk will be followed by a light picnic of local cheese, local bread, and hyper-local wild greens! Get tickets HERE!
- Park at the Milburnie Park entrance of the trail at 5428 Allen Dr., Raleigh.
