Foraging 101: Excursion & Workshop, Session 6.

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 October 5th session may include wild mushrooms, wild apples, wild grapes, tree bark and edible and medicinal roots. 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. This session will conclude with a shared meal we will cook from the season’s bounty that we have harvested and preserved together.

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.
