I am happy to announce that I will be hosting the 2016 Spring Foraging Workshop & Hike on Saturday, April 16th at North Park in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
Spring is the perfect time to learn the skills involved in foraging for wild food. Roots, tubers, shoots, greens, buds, and flowers are among the various plant structures that are available for harvesting. Learn how to properly identify and harvest various wild species in Pennsylvania so that you can achieve greater levels of health, self-reliance, and nature connection.
The first part of the event will feature a presentation and discussion on springtime edible wild plants and mushrooms. During the second part of the event, we will explore the trails of North Park and discover, discuss, and learn about the edible plants in their habitats.
By attending the Spring Foraging Workshop & Hike on April 16th, you will learn:
- The importance of foraging for wild edible plants and mushrooms
- Sustainable harvesting practices
- Wild plant identification
- Tree identification
- Edible and medicinal uses of trees
- Wild plant nutrition
- Harvesting methods
- Culinary applications
- Medicinal benefits
…and much more!
