Urban Foraging for Wild Edibles
Tasty wild plants grow abundantly here in Boston, many of which we walk right by without ever knowing they are even there. If you'd like to upgrade your knowledge of the wild plants readily available for foraging, join David Craft on a ramble along the Charles River to learn about and identify dozens of edibles. You will learn greens, roots, fruits, nuts, and if we are lucky, some easy to identify edible mushrooms as well.

In addition to identification, we will cover how these wild edibles can add significantly to your culinary and health repertoire. We'll discuss cooking options, seasons of availability, and guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging. You'll be amazed at the amount of edibles coming up all around us. Sampling in the field will be encouraged.

David Craft's book will be on sale for $10. Meet at the parking lot adjacent to the Christian Herter Community Garden at 1155 Soldiers Field Road in Allston, MA.

therapy for cancer treatment at the Massachusetts General Hospital. His research page is here . He is an active urban forager, and has a book on that topic here: http://goo.gl/yNYQ8.
