Russ Cohen, professional environmentalist and wild foods enthusiast, is in his 37th year of teaching courses about wild edibles. His book,
Wild Plants I Have Known...and Eaten, came out in June of 2004 and is in its fourth printing.
Greater Boston is home to over 150 species of edible wild plants, many of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than common cultivated counterparts. Join Russ Cohen, for two Twilight Wild Edibles Walks at Great Brook Farm State Park in Carlisle. Cohen has documented 66 different species of wild edible species at the park. Different edible species and plant parts are available depending on the season. These two walks are spaced out over spring and summer to observe plants at different stages of growth and demonstrate what to harvest when as the seasons change.
The cost of each workshop is $30, with $5 discounts for NOFA membership, early registration (2 weeks before the workshop), and for signing up for both workshops.
Pre-registration is required unless arranged by phone with the organizer, Ben Grosscup, cell:[masked]-5374.
