About the event

Hesketh Island is a remote, rocky outcropping in Kachemak Bay near Homer, Alaska. It’s a stunning setting, surrounded by fantastical rock formations and rich marine life. From here, we’ll forage wild foods like porcini and wild berries, and we'll kayak and learn about the natural history of the area and watch for wildlife.  At Wild Food camp you’ll learn to break down whole fish and use the eggs, head, bellies and collars. You'll open oysters and make seaweed pasta.  We’ll craft compotes, jams and cordials (for cocktails and mocktails) with foraged berries and delicious savory dishes with wild mushrooms.

Join Food Writer and Chef Maria Finn and Outdoor guide and principal at True North Kayak Adventures Alison O’Hara, as they show you their favorite food-centric adventures in this spectacular setting.

Homebase will be the Smokey Bay Chalet, a gorgeous house with an open kitchen and wrap-around deck with views of the Augustine volcano. There’s also a sauna that sits over a stream at the edge of the beach.

Cost includes all activities, meals, beverages, and transportation to and from the island. Not included is travel to Homer, Alaska, and accommodations before or after camp.

All participants will be required to have Travelers Medical Insurance (should be under $100 per person) Information and quote here:
