This is nice to know, thank you Martha! It an important fact. I need to see the plant again. It takes awhile for things to sink in.

Wonderful, Martha! Thank you. Yes, I agree we should have a cooking class. My curser hops around on its own will, so often, before correction, emails get sent with individulal letters insurted anywhere, hense - goa. l - glad you could still understand.

Sad I missed this. I was late and it was pouring. The picks look great though!
I had a wonderful time. Martha and Eric, thank you very much for leading us. I will let you know how the garlic mustard pesto turns out. I will post plant photos and the group photo soon.

I am excited! It looks like the rains will hold out at least until 2 PM, giving us a good 3 hours to forage. I like the convenient place to park; thanks for marking the map with the arrow.
I hope it's ok but I'm bringing my 2yr old. He loves the outdoors.
Hello! I am completely new and this will be my first meetup with you guys. Is there anything specific we need to take with us? Can't wait to meet you all!

I was thinking maybe around two hours, but I will defer to Martha's superior knowledge as to the duration of the forage.
Just curious how far and for how long the exploring will be.

I am so excited about learning this cool skill.
Martha, thank you so very much for leading the group. Sorry about getting the date wrong - Sunday the 30th at 11:00 is perfect for me. I am so excited about learning this cool skill.

David H. changed the location to Lake Roland

It sounds like Robert E. Lee Park is the first choice for our forage, so I will set that as our tentative location. If our group leader(s) would like to change the location, I will do so.
What do you guys think about having it on Sunday, June 29th? Hopefully we can find an experienced forager to lead us within 3 weeks.

I would love to meet you all and forage soon!! Sundays work for me
Eric, Are you up for what has been suggested???
I too will definitely come if I can. Robert E. Lee is my first choice, then Stony Run, Herring Run Park, and then Gwynn's Fall/Leaking Park. All are O.k this is just a preference.

Sundays work for me; I just hope we can find someone who can lead the group. I can only identify four edible weeds: dandelion, chicory, plantain, and clover. I am excited about learning to identify more edibles especially burdock and cattail.
I will definitely join if the time works for me. I live close to re lee
Robert E. Lee would be good. We were there very early spring, perhaps too early. This time we could go along the lake on the other side of the train tracks. And I'd like it on a Sunday.
Looking forward to meeting the group and eating some weeds.
