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. Go to http://www.WildFoodies.org for more information, our free Field Guides, and other important information!
Also, find the latest Plant-of-the-Week and news under "MORE", then "Message Board".
This is our chance to see a few wild edible and medicinal plants during the wintertime! It's a very different experience and only for the hail and hearty, which doesn't always include me! That said, I'm committed to braving the elements, unless it is snowing or raining. Everyone dress appropriately and bring something warm to drink. I'll be waiting inside of Loyd Hall in the lobby. Feel free to get a snack at the Cosmic Cafe next to the lobby. Hope to see you there!
Neighbors in the Fishtown/Kensington area get together at Penn Treaty Park or other local green space to share experience, identify local plants, and brainstorm ways to share and spread wild food knowledge with our local community.
