Wild Edible Walk at Warwick Park

Join me on a wild edible walk through field and forest in the beautiful Warwick park in northern Chester county.  On this walk I will identify, and you can sample, a variety of  edible plants; including cattail, chickweed, catbrier, wild onion, plantain, clover, garlic mustard, spice bush, etc.  I will also identify a number a plants that will produce great fruit/nuts in the late summer and Fall including black walnut, shagbark hickory, raspberry/blackberry, wild grape, elderberry, etc.  In addition I will identify a number of plants along the way simply because they are too beautiful to pass by without recognition. 

The walk will cover about a mile across flat terrain.  But there will be bugs, possibly ticks and some mud so I suggest insect repellent and good shoes.

    Fantastic! Allan is very knowledgeable and attentive to the participants. He researched the site ahead of time so he had a well planned walk for us. What a treat! Excellent job! Great group of people!

    Hey I just wanted to say I'm sorry I can't make it. I was really looking forward to this because it's closer to where I live and would be the first meet up I attended. But as usual something always comes up. Hopefully there will more out this way again. Thanks for having this. Keep on keepin on.

    Fellow nature lovers,

    Glad to see interest in this walk. Want to clarify the directions. The location and link I wrote below the park address (shown in italics) is correct. Use that link to get directions. However, if you click on the name “Warwick County Park” on the Meetup site you will be taken to a google map that locates the address deep in the woods of the park (not the parking lot where we will meet). And if you click on directions using this map you will be directed to this spot in the woods (not the parking lot where we will meet).

    To get the correct location in google maps yourself enter “Warwick County Park Office, 191 County Park Rd, Pottstown, PA”. I don’t know where a GPS system would led you. The key point is to use the main entrance off county park road.

    Feel free to call me if you need clarification (home:[masked]). Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I'm leaving from Narberth at 8:30, and could take up to 3 others. If you can get to the Narberth train station (Regional Rail Paoli/Thorndale line) or one of the Narberth bus stops (Rt 44) by then, or are on the way to the turnpike for me (Ardmore, Haverford, Bryn Mawr) I could pick people up. Message me here if that works for you.

    This sounds like such a fun event! Is anyone going from the City? I'm wondering if I may catch a ride with someone who may be going from the city.
