Forage Edible Plants & Mushrooms
Find out what you can eat in the woods! We'll hike in the lovely Santa Cruz mountains where I'll guide you on a beautiful, quiet 1-2 mile walk in the unique coastal oak & redwood forest. Together we'll learn the ancient ways of identifying edible and medicinal mushrooms, plants, roots, flowers, nuts and seeds (depending on the season. Mushrooms come out after the rains and fruit through winter, sometimes into spring). Along the way we'll discuss proper harvesting and preparation techniques while connecting to the beauty and abundance of our ecosystem. This experience is a fun, hands-on way to connect to what can feed, heal and harm us in the wild. You'll walk away with a whole new appreciation and understanding of nature! The hike is doable for all skill levels. See you on the trail! Other things to note: Secure your own transportation to The Buttery and we'll caravan to the hike start. Bring: layers (it can get chilly in the redwoods), water bottle and comfortable hiking shoes. Optional: hiking poles, camera, hat, sunglasses.

Beginner Surf Lesson - Santa Cruz
Beginner Surfing l is our popular 3-hour group surf clinic. So what will you be learning? This clinic was designed with the beginner in mind – we welcome complete newbies as well as people who have tried surfing on their own for a while and still need help. We will walk you through all the basics to get you started and catching waves! There will be a short land-lesson to start, and after that we'll head out to catch some waves. You'll get approximately 1:45-2 hours of "water time" in the 3-hour class. Maximum ratio of 4 students per instructor. FAQ: Why are some of these class times SOOO early?! Answer: When it comes to surfing, mother nature sets a lot of the rules - that's what makes it such a unique sport. If we don't go on the right tide, we won't get any waves! While those early morning sessions might be hard to wake up for, they are also truly magical. Great surf conditions, no wind, no crowds - it is about as epic as it gets. If you make the commitment go early, we can promise you'll be rewarded with the experience of a lifetime!
Evening Sail and Wildlife
We'll set sail from the Santa Cruz Harbor aboard the classic Westsail 42' Nomad, and head out into the Monterey Bay in search of smooth water, fair winds, and wildlife. We'll be in search of gray, humpback whales, and dolphins. Experiencing sea otters, harbor seals, sea lions, and myriad sea birds are virtually guaranteed. Later in the evening we'll take leisurely tacks back to the harbor. At this point you are in an ideal location to take a walk on the beach or have dinner at an excellent restaurant. If you select the Private Experience button Nomad is yours for the experience, this is a private charter. This is the price for up to 6 passengers for 2 hours.

Goat Walk on The Beach
We are hosting a goat walk on the beach with two or more goats in our herd for individuals and groups. A few hours before our meeting time we prepare and transport our trained goats from our herd all the way down to the beach from our sanctuary to walk alongside you for a unique, once in a lifetime experience. Our goats are very special goats nurtured from birth by Billie and her interns to develop a strong trusting relationship with people. Our goats love people and are very interested in getting to know the people they meet. We will meet at the trail head that leads to a very magical and less frequented beach location. When we meet at the trail head location we will talk for about 10 minutes with tips on goat safety. We will also talk about goat companionship, interspecies communication, and the history of humans and goats plus lots more while we walk the trail to the beach guiding the goats along side us stopping to munch a bit. The path to the beach includes a beautiful forested landscape and a few flights of stairs so be prepared to walk some stairs. The walk down to the beach takes about 15 minutes. We will spend about 40 minutes on the beach with the goats. This walk may be canceled if there are less than 4 guests booked. So invite friends! Children are welcome to attend with adult supervision. The whole experience will last no longer than 90 minutes.

Cooking From Gujarat, India and WineTasting
We will learn how to make the most well-loved Gujarati Dishes, something you have never tried in any Indian restaurant before. I'm the author of a cookbook titled "From Gujarat, With Love." I designed this book to be a unique expression of our culinary identity. I've worked with a world-class celebrity photographer Jonathan Lovekin to shoot food photos to make this happen. My mission and passion are to share recipes from my cookbook with the world. Thus, the cooking experience simultaneously features a clever and unique combination of distinctive, sweet, sour, and spicy flavors. We will prepare two famous Gujarati appetizers, which Gujarati cuisine is known for, followed by masala chai (Tea) and complimentary authentic Gujarati dish. Gujarat is the KING of appetizers, and these appetizers are heart-healthy and a gift from Gujarat to the rest of the world. Not to mention, I have never met a single person who says that I'm not a fan of Gujarati Snacks. That's IMPRESSIVE!! Once you taste everyone's favorite Gujarati snacks at my cooking experience, you will know why everyone is raving about these mouth-watering snacks. After preparing the food, we will have local wine and a pleasant sit-down tasting session to taste the food, followed by a complimentary Gujarati dessert...YUM!
