Foraging for Spring Wild Edibles
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 1 to 2 miles in the woods.
You will need the following tools for this class:
Appropriate clothing and footwear to be in the spring woods, which can be muddy and wet. This should include rain gear.
Feel free to bring your favorite tools and whatever materials you might feel appropriate for this course.
