Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Tasty wild plants grow abundantly in the area, many of which we walk right by without ever knowing they are there. Upgrade your knowledge of the wild greens readily available for foraging by joining a plant expert on a ramble through an urban wild. You’ll learn how to identify dozens of edible wild plants and how they can add significantly to your culinary and nutritional repertoire. We’ll also discuss cooking options, seasons of availability, and guidelines for safe and environmentally-responsible foraging. You’ll be amazed at the amount of greens, nuts, roots, and mushrooms that you can find now and over the next couple of months. Sampling in the field will be encouraged. Children ages 10+ are welcome to register if accompanied by a registered adult. Please note: Meeting location will be emailed one week prior to class. All walks meet rain or shine. For those interested in learning more about this subject, the guide’s book, Urban Foraging, will be available.
