Wild, Edible Plants

  • Thursday, May 9, 2024, 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Come explore the grounds at the Extension Education Center to learn about the value of woodlands and fields in a new way. Foraging is a great way to get to know your land as a resource for local foods. It can be a wonderful family activity and comes with a greater understanding of our interactions with the natural world. Participants will learn what is available on a seasonal basis as well as how to collect food without disturbing or endangering a plant population. Recommendations will be given on how to safely collect food with the help of local resources. Following the walk, we will learn how to incorporate these wild foods into a meal. Locally foraged goods will be made available for samples and snacking during a Q & A to wrap up this evening.
