Curious about wild edibles? You are invited to attend this free event at Albert Family Community Forest for an introduction to foraging on the Plateau. Learn about the identification of common edibles, microclimates, and herbal remedies! We will take a hike through the woods and be edible detectives as we search for plants to add to our diets. You'll leave with some basic insights into the world of wild edibles


This is a free event and all are welcome, but we do ask that you pre-register using the link below.
