Eat Wild: Fresh, Diverse, and Sustainable Food
Did you know that there exist approximately 75,000 edible plant species in the world? But that only 30 species produce 95% of the food we eat? This means that more than 99% of edible plant species are drastically underutilized. And a surprising number of these species live right in your own backyard— even in urban environments! Join Maria Wesserle of Four Season Foraging to learn some foraging basics and discover common wild edible plants. Four Season Foraging is a Minneapolis-based business that connects people with the resources necessary to start harvesting and preparing wild foods and medicines. This is accomplished by promoting trustworthy sources, writing informative blog posts, and offering classes and workshops. ___________________________________ Detailed Location Information (http://mnrovers.org/weekly-program/program-locations/) Join us afterwards at Ol' Mexico for more socializing (1745 Lexington Avenue, two blocks north of Larpenteur). In addition to our Tuesday night programs, there are also plenty of member-coordinated activities. Browse through the activities page (http://mnrovers.org/html/activities.htm) on our website if you'd like to play outside with us!
