Hi my name is Kyle Koch. My favorite thing to do is get outside and go forage for local edible wild plants and turn them into delicious treats. I am a Certified Naturalist, graduate of the Wilderness Awareness Schools 9 month nature immersion program: Anake Outdoor School. Graduate of a 1 year Wild Plant Apprenticeship. I have been teaching tracking and survival skills for the past 7 years locally here in the PNW. I am an avid forager, going out on weekly adventures.

I was excited to see this class offered through Airbnb because we had met Kyle in a wilderness awareness school and I have an interest in medicinal plants. Kyle clearly loves being in nature and has a wealth of knowledge. We enjoyed him and the beautiful environment... so much that we hiked further and had an ocean view lunch.

Kyle shared his enthusiasm for foraging and for our natural resources. I learned practical skills I can use the next time I’m in a forest (urban or back-country).

Kyle was really knowledgeable and easy going. This was a nice, easy introduction to foraging with some basic, but important concepts that will stick with me. I would (and plan on) definitely doing this again, since as foraging changes with the seasons, so too does the knowledge gained.

Kyle is very knowledgable and he told me he even took a nine-month forage school. We recognized many kinds of berries in Discover Park. The trip was fun and I am pretty sure that I will bring more friends to this trip a few weeks later.

Kyle was great, very knowledgeable and offered general foraging tips which were really appreciated along with finer knowledge of specific plants that we focused on. Apparently the plants that he shows are different depending on the time of the season so you never know what you're going to be foraging for! :)
