Foraging for Wild Food and Medicine @ Essex Environmental Center

Fee - $35

Advance registration is required; call 973.228.8776.

Join Dan for an insightful walk around the land to demystify the “wall of green” surrounding us. He will teach you to identify many plants revered in the herbal traditions for healing ailments, as well as how to forage for nutritious wild food directly from the land. We will sample the wild plant wonders Nature guides us to, and focus on methods to use and prepare them. Gain the skills and confidence necessary to utilize the countless organic, fresh, local and free plant resources Nature continually provides.

Bring a camera and notebook for recording the plants we find.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
