Wild foods are nutritious, free, and packed with flavor, but some people find the idea of foraging intimidating. In this webinar, we’ll look at common weeds and familiar garden plants, all of which are delicious, and within your reach. In these times, when people are anxious about so many things, including food security, why not turn your appreciation of plants into something more? This is not about fear. It’s about acquiring a new skill that will give you pleasure, security, and good, flavorful food for years to come.
Non-member participants joining GardenComm by Friday, June 5 will be eligible for a drawing to win a free copy of Ellen’s book, “Backyard Foraging: 65 Familiar Plants You Didn’t Know You Could Eat” courtesy of our presenter.
This event is FREE for all.
