Wild Edible Walk 10:00am-1:30pm, lunch follows at nourish restaurant
The Greater Boston Area is home to over 100 species of edible wild plants, some of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts, and dozens of species of edible mushrooms. Join Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten, for a morning talk at a nearby location in Lexington to learn about at least eighteen of the tastiest wild plant species in our midst. These range from plants everyone knows well, like Daisies and Dandelions, to plants they may never have even heard of, like Calamus and Black Locust. Russ will present information for each species on identification tips, edible portion(s), season(s) of availability and preparation methods, along with general guidelines for safe and environmentally-responsible foraging.
This event is being organized by Karen Masterson at nourish restaurant. Exact meeting place in Lexington will be provided for all those who register. Call nourish at 781 674-2400 or Karen at phone number above. Thank You for your support of locally grown initiatives!
