What we're about

Go to www.WildFoodies.org (http://www.wildfoodies.org/) for Plant Profiles, free Field Guides, Cautions, and other important information! Our main mission is to educate the public on the many uses of wild plants and animals for food, fiber, and medicine. Wild edible plants and animals are the only truly sustainable food source, in that nature determines whether they survive and thrive. So, it's important that we respect, explore, and know nature. But we can't do it alone.

We need more tour guides and collaborative walks! Please volunteer.

Enjoy a Warm Winter Break On Lemon Hill to ID Winter Greens!

It's predicted to be really warm, so let's venture out to see what's happening on Lemon Hill. If we have time, we can also venture over to behind the Art Museum. We'll see pennycress, mugwort, garlic mustard, Shepard's purse, and more. Prepare by reviewing - http://www.wildfoodies.org/Winter&Greens.docx If you're driving, park on Sedgley. Hope to see you there! Lynn Landes www.WildFoodies.org

Pennypack Park's "Annual Backyard Maple Sugaring Workshop" with Peter Kurtz!

This is one of my favorite events. As in past years, Peter Kurtz, Pennypack's Environmental Education Program Specialist, will be doing a Backyard Maple Sugaring Workshop at Pennypack Environmenmtal Center. Peter is an expert on tapping trees and cooking the sap, which can be tricky. He usually whips-up something delicious to eat for this event. If weather allows Peter will have fresh sap to sample, and you'll all go out to tape a tree. There will also be an indoor session for questions and comments. For more information on Tree Sap: http://www.wildfoodies.org/TREES.htm Enjoy!
