In this walk and talk we focus entirely on wild edibles, although we may address questions on medicinal benefits here and there, food will be the focus. Each month of the growing season in the mid Atlantic is so diverse in plants and fungi, we will definitely include fungal foods when they pop! With each plant /mushroom we encounter we will discuss:
- How to correctly identify each plant
- What parts are edible
- How to safely prepare it for eating
- How to preserve it for long term storage
- How to honor the plant and help it thrive (aka planting back/how to not over harvest)
Location: Greenbelt MD
Audio and video recording is allowed and encouraged. Note taking can be helpful, as we will cover a lot of very specific information. Dress appropriately for the the weather and bring a water bottle and snacks to share.
