Wild Edible Walk

Food is all around us, if we know where to look!

Our urban environment has a bounty to offer in the early Spring. From violet leaves and flowers, to cleavers and chickweed. Let's walk along Little Sugar Creek Greenway and get to know our wild edible weedy friends.

Early Spring 2019 TBA

Chickweed, Stellaria media

Dandelion, Taraxacum officinale

Prepare for your workshop

Some basic botany is a good idea if you want to start foraging.

100% identification is necessary for your good health. Some plants have look-a-likes that may not be as tasty as your target plant or medicinal effects may vary or be vastly different, some could even be toxic!

Know your weeds before you eat them!

Some of favorites books are:

SouthEast Foraging by Chris Bennett

Edible Wild Plants by John Kallas

The Forager's Harvest by Sam Thayer

 

 

WHAT'S INCLUDED

We will start at Amilee's at the back court of Park Road Shopping Center and have a general botany talk to help us 100% identify our target plants. Then we will take a leisurely stroll along the Little Sugar Creek Greenway and look for:

Violets

Dandelions

Chickweed

Cleavers

Purple Dead Nettle

Henbit
