Foraging for Spring Wild Edibles

Course Overview

Have you always been interested in gathering wild foods but just weren't sure where to start? This class is a great introduction to spring edibles as we focus on just five common, nutritious and often abundant plants. These early risers sprout up almost as soon as the snow is gone, so you can be eating nutritious local green vegetables long before the farmers market gets rolling. We will start with introductions, ethics, and identification, and then take a field trip to locate and harvest the spring bounty. We will then come back to the classroom and prepare some simple dishes using what we collected. Participants should be prepared to hike one to two miles in the woods.
