In this class we will walk the grounds of Racebrook Tract in Orange, CT, (approx. 1 mile hike). We will find at least 25 wild edibles and discuss identification, edible components, environmental importance, taxonomy and more. This walk will focus primarily on plants and is geared toward beginner foragers. The class will run approximately 2 hours. Some of the plants we will be looking at are: wild black raspberry, dewberry, mugwort, wild grape, jewelweed, wild carrot, yarrow, northern bayberry, shadblow, black birch and more. This class will be lead by Joe Ross owner of eattheplanet.org. Please direct all questions to Joe at email@example.com .
This class will cover similar material as my other classes at this site, but each class is unique. During the early spring season we will be focusing on edible plant shoots, edible young plants and lawn weeds, as well as early edible flowers and pollen catkins and we’ll also talk about scouting for developing fruits this growing season.
