Edible Nature: The Seasons with Forager Ben Lord
Jul 28 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Saturday, July 28; Sunday, September 30 at BEEC

Join Ben Lord for an introduction to wild edibles plants. Ben will talk about the plants of each season, how to identify them and how to prepare them, with a focus on the skills that will help foragers continue to learn on their own. Each workshop will combine a talk and a walk to look for and sample some of the season’s  bounty.

Ben Lord is biology teacher, and writes about nature and wild edibles for Northern Woodlands magazine.

Summer: Saturday, July 28  from 1-3:30

At the height of summer, fruits, berries, flower buds and flowers can be added to the variety of wild greens available. We’ll focus on gathering strategies, sustainable harvests and planning a foraging calendar.

 Autumn: Sunday, September 30 from 1-3:30

It’s harvest time, and wild plants have produced the seeds, nuts, fruit, and tubers they need to make it to the next growing season. Come learn about the wild plants that can help you fatten for winter. We’ll focus on cooking, preparing, and preserving.
