The Wild Edibles walk will take place at The Wild Garden on Saturday, May 25 in Johnston, RI at 10am ending at 12noon (or thereabouts), rain or shine. There are over 50 wild edibles on a compact acre which makes this a very walkable adventure, although sturdy shoes and appropriate clothing along with bug spray are recommended. What should you expect on this walk? Info handouts with space to make your own notes; sampling previously prepared wild delectables and forest drinks; teaming up with a partner to gather plants for a communal wild salad; recipes to take home; new cool friends! Fee is $20 per person, 15 people max. Please contact me in advance to save your place. Happy Trails!
It's been way too long to say this, but thank you Kathy! It gave me so much pleasure to have you all here even though it was a dreary, rainy day.
I'm having 2 more Wild Edibles walks in July: Saturday, July 13 and Saturday, July 27. If anyone is interested in knowing wild plants and eating several dishes made from them as well as wild drinks , please post your request here.
I'm thinking of having a "Cooking with Wild Plants" class in August
if there's interest generated from the walks. (I have aprons!) Fee for either of these 2 1/2 hour classes is $20.

Please post these as meet-ups! I would definitely be interested.

I would attend both. I also want to bend peoples ear on sprouting wild edibles. Obviously, many wilds, like Dandelion and Curled Dock produce thousands of seeds. My plan is to collect seeds from these two species and possibly others for sprouts during the winter.
