Wild Woody's Foraging Adventures

  • Address: Lake Raleigh Boat Ramp, NC State Main Campus Dr., Raleigh, NC 27606

About

Daniel Woody is a current student at North Carolina State University, majoring in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management, hoping to specialize in foraging. He is offering walking tours of different parts of Raleigh, such as Lake Raleigh and Downtown. While on the tour you will be learning how to forage, looking for different things you can use to spice up your dinners in an interesting way. Raleigh used to be home to many farms and different types of vegetation before World War II and some of that vegetation is still here today, which is some of the things you will be looking for! This tour is available to guests of all ages and is recommended for families and groups of friends that are interested in a unique local experience. This tour will involve moderate physical activity consisting of walking distances up to 2 miles with hands-on activities. This tour will approximately last 2 hours, will start in select areas of Raleigh, and is available mostly on weekends. Daniel Woody has lived in North Carolina his whole life, and grew up in the quiet town of Oxford, NC. Growing up, he and his brothers explored the woods around his home in hopes of finding entertainment for themselves. As he explored those woods, he began finding things that he could bring home to his family to use for meals. Since then, his love for foraging has grown and he even teaches his friends how to forage as well. He is looking to pass on this useful skill and knowledge to anyone interested in the Raleigh area. Pricing starts at $100.00 for groups of 4 or less. $25 extra per person
