2019 Mendocino Coast Forage & Ferment Experience

Little River Inn has created a package for those who want to learn how to gather, prepare and preserve Mendocino’s homegrown goodness themselves. Please join us for our second annual Mendocino Coast Forage and Ferment Experience beginning on Friday, May 10, 2019.

  • Welcoming reception on Friday, May 10 with a history of the area served up with cocktails, wine and appetizers, emphasizing locally gathered and preserved delicacies.
  • Breakfast on Saturday, May 11 before heading out on an adventure with Kevin Smith, Countryman Forager to mine the forest and beach for treasures and an afternoon at the beach collecting savory seaweed with Erica Fieldler, co-owner of Rising Tide Sea Vegetables and exploring the treasures in the tidepools.
    Includes bagged lunch on Saturday
  • Saturday, May 11 evening there will be live cooking demonstrations, including tips on preservation and ultimately a communal feast prepared by Chef Marc Dym that incorporates the day’s finds and celebrates Mendocino’s tradition of scrumptious self‑sufficiency.

plus lodging which starts at $490, exclusive of tax.
