Fall Foraging and Yoga Retreat at Stonehouse Farm


  • Stonehouse Farm 3719 Suydam Road Earlville, IL, 60518 United States (map)

Discover wild edible plants growing all around you! 

This interactive workshop allows people to learn about 20 wild edible plants over the course of the weekend by harvesting the plant, knowing how to cook with it and exploring different preservation techniques. This experience allows the student to deeply understand the plant itself and how to forage in a responsible way. 

Students will eat prepared wild foods over the weekend as well as participate in making some of their meals with the wild ingredients that they foraged themselves. There will also be daily yoga classes and a campfire on Saturday night. 

The cost of the weekend workshop is $275 per person and includes all meals, which are vegetarian. The student is required to bring their own tent. Indoor bathrooms and showers are available. 

Yurts are also available as lodging for an extra cost, please inquire with Stonehouse Farm to reserve a yurt for the weekend.
