Stayed tuned for upcoming workshop schedule.
Come learn the edible and useful plants of New Mexico's high desert!
In addition to crafting botanical products, Dryland Wilds also teaches local plant identification and foraging classes. We take groups of interested people for walks in northern New Mexico, teaching about dozens of edible and useful local plants and how to sustainably harvest and process them. The high desert has an incredible bounty of wild foods as well an amazing array of beautiful and useful aromatics. Learning these plants brings a whole new relationship and connection to wild spaces, whether you are hiking out to prune piñon and gather oak galls or foraging an abandoned lot for super-greens and wild berries. With respect for the land we are on, we only teach invasive and super common high desert plants. Come learn the wilds with us!
Private Wild Walks can also be arranged in or around Santa Fe or Albuquerque, and focused on wilderness or urban foraging. Private groups an be structured to class interest and are a 7 student minimum - please contact us for pricing. Individual instruction is priced at $50/hr with a minimum of a two hour class. Wheelchair accessible classes can be arranged. Please contact us to set up a private group or individual expedition. Also follow us on Instagram and Facebook to learn about upcoming wild walks in your area!
