From: Glen C.

Announcing a new Meetup for Connecticut Raw/Live Food:Catch A Healthy Habit Cafe!

What: Foraging with "Wildman" Steve Brill

When: Sunday, September 5,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Sticks and Stones Farm
201 Huntingtown Road Newtown
Newtown, CT 06470

This 60-acre stone masonry farm and retreat features a wide variety of habitats?a mountain, meadows, woods, cultivated areas, and fields, and wetlands?all loaded with their associated wild plants and mushrooms.
Nuts are at their peak now, and we'll be on the lookout for shagbark hickories and white oak trees, both delicious, and unavailable commercially.

Autumn fruits will also be in season. We'll be looking for smooth sumac, which makes pink lemonade; wild raisins, which taste like bananas and prunes; American hackberries, which taste like the candy coating of M&Ms; flavorful wild apples, hawthorn berries, somewhat similar to apples; and common spicebush berries, an allspice-like seasoning.

The 30-minute talk and 90-minute tour begin at 2:30 PM,
Sunday, September 5,
at Sticks and Stones Farm at 201 Huntingtown Rd. in Newtown, CT.
The fee is $25/adult, $10/child under 12.
Call (203)[masked] at least 24 hours ahead to reserve a place.
