Edible Wild Plants and Fungi of Spring

As the warmer temperatures and longer days of spring unfold, many tender, young edible shoots, plants, flowers, and even a few fungi awaken a forager’s senses and delight. Edible Wild Plants and Fungi of Spring is an informative and entertaining seasonal presentation where attendees will learn how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare the wild foods of spring, from invasive bamboo shoots to the lemony tang of fresh wood sorrel, including some of the early edible fungi of the season.

Guest speakers for the program are “The 3 Foragers”, a family from southeastern Connecticut who have been identifying, photographing, and cooking with the edible plants and fungi of New England for more than 18 years. Their educational slideshow will focus on family-friendly, environmentally sustainable harvest of both native and invasive species of plants, and ways to incorporate these foods into a diet with original recipes.
