Foraging 101: Excursion & Workshop, Session 4.

This is part of a 6-session series offered by Founding Naturalist Laura Silverman to introduce fellow naturalists to the ancient skill of foraging. Over the course of 5 months (May-October), we will venture out as a group to different landscapes to search for and sustainably harvest wild edibles in season. Then, we will return to Laura’s home in Eldred, NY, to learn about processing and preparation of the harvest, including methods of cooking and preservation. At the end of the season, we will share a meal made from what we have preserved.

You may sign up for one session at a time; if you sign up for all 6 sessions, there is a savings of $100. REGISTER FOR ALL 6 SESSIONS HERE. Advance registration is required.

The July 27th session may include milkweed pods, sumac, all manner of berries and wild greens in season. Due to weather and other environmental factors, it is difficult to predict exactly what we will find, but the hunt is part of the learning curve.

Location: Sullivan County, NY. Exact meeting place will be emailed to participants.

Of note: Limited to 10 people. We will be outside rain or shine. Terrain will be relatively easy on most excursions.
