Introduction to Foraging: Why, How & Where to Discover Wild Edibles

Cost: FREE
Date: Tuesday, May 26 from 2:00 pm-3:00 pm
Location: Zoom invitation for on-line learning
Presenter: Laura Chávez Silverman, founding naturalist of The Outside Institute

At a time when slow living, self-sufficiency and a deeper connection to the natural world are at the forefront of human consciousness, foraging is becoming increasingly popular. This ancient practice was once how we survived in the world and still taps into a deeply primal place in all of us. But heading out into the woods armed with nothing more than a desire to find something edible can be frustrating. Unless you know how to properly identify and consume wild edibles, they can offer deliciousness—or disaster. Depending on the season, the choicest delicacies might be in plain sight or virtually invisible. In this class, learn how to forage wisely and responsibly and a whole new world will open up to you. Q&A to follow.
