Nibbling on Native Plants

Join Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of “Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten,” for a presentation featuring two dozen species of native edible wild plants suitable for adding to your own landscape, or nibbling on as you encounter them in other locales. Keys to the identification of each species will be provided, along with edible portions, seasons of availability and cooking recipes. Russ will also include guidelines for sustainable foraging, a few details regarding some native edible plants he has grown successfully from seed, and the partnerships he has made with conservation groups, such as Norman Bird Sanctuary, to add edible native plants to their landscapes. Last but not least, Russ will bring several samples of foraged goodies made with native species for folks to sip and nibble on.
