Presenter: 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.

    Incorrect start time posted by NOFA organizer on the Meetup page and sent in numerous reminder emails caused us to be late, and we missed the event. Very disappointed and hope NOFA will compensate.

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.
