Explore the outdoors with Rob Riman, through an interactive, refreshing, and educational urban foraging tour! Participants will meet at the Farm in Fort Hill Neighborhood.
Rob Riman passed his youth roaming Lake Michigan’s upland ravines and paddling nearby tributary headwaters of the Mississippi. Following studies in geology, and a decade leading remote expeditions across North America, from alpine heights to coastal backwaters, he entered his current urban phase, first building traditional wooden boats with youth in NYC, later pursuing graduate work in architecture and sustainable design, and leading to his co-founding of the local nonprofit Home Energy Efficiency Team (HEET). Today, he delights in his various roles as a freelance naturalist and place-sourced educator, embracing landful living practices, while working to decolonize his own learning. Homeschool dad to two semi-feral children and avid forager, Rob resides along the former shoreline of the Quinobequin’s impounded estuary, on traditional territory of the Massachusett, Pawtucket and Naumkeag people.
