No classes. But do you have a copy of "Pacific Feast?" Amazon has used copies for under $8.

Basically all coastal type vegetation from what I see, right?

There is a "school" south of Monroe called Alderleaf Wilderness College that offers edible classes and many others. I believe it was off of Ben Howard. It had an interesting variety of subjects.  Only attended one day class we purchased through Groupon several years ago.  Some of classes are quite expensive if I recall.

Come down to Vancouver in March or April. I'll show you how to forage at least 10-12 edibles.

Wilderness Awareness School is in Duvall and is supposed to be pretty good. One of their instructors is a member here.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

There was a homeless guy in Ashland Or that would teach these classes for just a donation. Guy really knows his stuff too. Obviously southern Oregon is very different than Western Wa. I know a lot about the subject but would also like to learn more. I know a few resources in Snohomish county. Feel free to send me a PM.

Most is coastal. But I just thumbed through it and some things will be found east of the mountains. The book focuses a lot on recipes for wild edibles instead of just what can be eaten.

An old friend of mine, Running Squirrel (now passed), taught me most of what I know about foraging. The book that he made me buy and has been an essential tool in my box is Discovering Wild Plants - AK, W. Canada, The Northwest by Janice Schofield. It has everything that grows anywhere in the state and it's uses - edibility, medicinal, etc. I would highly recommend this guide to anyone who forages, novice or expert. I have perhaps a dozen others but they don't come close to this one.

Check out their course calendar. I took the fire by friction class from them a few years back.

Military survival manuals have sections on wild edibles too.
