Sun., April 10, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.: You can find delicious wild edible plants and mushrooms right in the city’s parks. Take a guided tour of Prospect Park with forager, committed locavore and Brooklyn Botanic Garden instructor, Leda Meredith. Leda will teach you how to safely identify and harvest edibles in the urban terrain. Pack a lunch. At the end of the foraging walk, you will spend some time sitting in the shade while Leda takes Q& A and you taste treats made with wild edible ingredients.
Leda Meredith is the author of The Locavore’s Handbook: The Busy Person’s Guide to Eating Local on a Budget.
What to Bring: Please bring a bottle of water, a camera if you have one, baggies for samples, a notebook, pen, and labels to identify what you collect. If you want to stick around afterwards, bring a prepared lunch. Wear comfortable shoes!
Weather notes: They will walk in sun or drizzle. Heavy downpour, they’ll reschedule.
