Indoor presentation with outdoor exploration with Sheila Nemcsok.

Learn about foraging in the region with Sheila Nemcsok!
 

We are surrounded by a wide variety of wild edible foods in our city.  Join Sheila Nemcsok, an avid hobby forager, for some hands-on learning about safely and sustainably identifying, collecting and using at least 10 wild foods that are locally available and in season.  Whether you are interested in improving your food self-sufficiency, expanding your range of culinary ingredients, or just interested in learning more about the plant life in our city, this workshop is for you. 

Come prepared for some classroom time, as well as an outdoor walk to look at specific edible plants including wood sorrel, pineapple weed (wild chamomile), wild grape leaves and lamb’s quarters in the grounds surrounding the Isabel Turner Library.  Please note that the outdoor portion will proceed except in cases of extreme weather.
