Summer Foraging

Click here to register

This workshop seeks to reflect the simple logic of finding food and resources in places where the wild things grow. In this workshop, Ryan Eavey will take participants on a 1.5 hour long walk, answering questions as they come, teaching about a handful of species that grow local to Boston, and preserving some ancient and inherently useful knowledge. The walk will go (nature permitting) through some of the very same areas of south Brookline where Ryan first started foraging.

About the Facilitator:
Some of Ryan Eavey’s best foraging experiences were while he worked with the Peace Corps in Zambia. Friends and neighbors in Zambia were naturalists by default, much like how folks would have been in Boston a few hundred years ago, and they freely handed him the knowledge that was passed on from generation to generation. Since that time, he has tried to learn and experience all the delicious and useful species that grow in his surroundings, and to pass that knowledge on to those who can appreciate its value. Like most who end up getting hooked on the outdoor pursuit of mushrooms, tubers, and tea ingredients, Ryan enjoys the search (almost) as much as he enjoys the hunt.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
