Edible Plants of Spring

Karen Monger will discuss her new book Adventures in Edible Plant Foraging:Finding, Identifying, Harvesting and Preparing Native and Invasive Wild Plants. As the warmer temperatures and longer days of spring unfold, many tender, young edible shoots, plants, flowers, and even a few fungi awaken a forager's senses and delight. Learn how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare the wild foods of spring, from invasive bamboo shoots to the lemony tang of fresh wood sorrel, including some of the early edible fungi of the season. Join The 3 Foragers as they discuss the edible plants and fungi of spring, with their original photos and recipe ideas featured in an educational slideshow, and provide handouts for participants about foraging for wild edibles.

Karen Monger is the author of The 3 Foragers blog, which she runs with her husband, Robert and their daughter, Gillian.  Free program; no registration is required.  Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
