Urban Foraging

Did you know that tasty wild plants grow abundantly in the Northeast? Join David Craft, local urban forager and plant expert, to upgrade your knowledge of the wild greens readily available for foraging. You'll learn how to identify dozens of edible wild plants, and how they can add significantly to your culinary and nutritional repertoire. We'll also discuss cooking options, seasons of availability, and guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging. You'll be amazed at the amount of greens, nuts, roots, and mushrooms that you can find now and over the next couple of months. Sampling in the field will be encouraged.

Please note: This event will meet in the Library's Watertown Savings Bank Room and walk outside along the Charles River. Plan to be outside for the duration of the event.

Ages 12+ are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.




Registration is required for this event.
