The Seasonal Kitchen: Urban Weeds and Wild Foods
Jun 15 2017 /6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$25 - $30
Wild plants and weeds are our most unloved plants, however, they are a sacred gift to us, waiting to be explored, consumed and relished! Much of our modern diet is missing the riches that are freely provided through wild edibles. They are a gift of super nutrition, medicine and delicious tastes, offering anti-aging benefits. Many of these plants can be discovered in your own backyard and added to your daily diet to increase your nutritional intake. They are a powerhouse of health and are a wonderful addition to soups, salads and smoothies or added to your favorite meals! Join Master Herbalist Sherilyn Long for a fun-filled introduction to cooking with wild edibles. Don’t spray those pesky weeds – eat them!
