Tim is a big opportunity for anyone wanting to learn more about tree species, wood, and forest ecology.  He also has a great deal of knowledge about indigenous cultures.

Fall Foraging in Prospect Park
Saturday, October 10 - Wild Foods Discussion and Walk
Tim Vireo Keating, director of Rainforest Relief and a forager for over 30 years, will bring us through Prospect Park to forage for common wild edibles. As a long-time urban forager, Tim will show how foraging common wild plants in city parks can not only provide fresh and healthful greens but can play an essential part of a freegan lifestyle. Tim will collect donations for the tour to support the work of Rainforest Relief, but everyone is absolutely welcome, whether you are able to donate or not.
When & Where?  Meet at 1pm at the at stone benches at the Grand Army Plaza entrance of Prospect Park in Brooklyn. (Take the 2 train to Grand Army Plaza or the Q train to 7th Ave.)
