Foraging Walk- April 30- Western Connecticut


Japanese knotweed shoots

As the warmer temperatures and longer days of spring unfold, many tender, young edible shoots, plants, flowers, and even a few fungi awaken a forager’s senses and delight. Learn how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare the wild foods of spring, from invasive bamboo shoots to the lemony tang of fresh wood sorrel, including some of the early edible fungi of the season. In this 2+hour ramble we will explore the verges, forests, and fields to find edibles. Educational handouts provided. This site is mainly for teaching, not actual harvesting in large quantities, so we suggest bringing a notebook and pen for taking notes, camera for taking photos, and your curiosity!
