Bedford Garden Club Presents Edible Wild Plants and Mushrooms
February 13 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Bedford Garden Club is inviting the public to a program on Edible Wild Plants and Mushrooms. Bedford is home to over 70 species of edible wild plants, some of which are more nutritious and flavorful than their cultivated counterparts. Join Russ Cohen, author of “Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten”, as he covers such species as well known Daisies and Dandelions to unknown plants, like Calamus and Carrion Flower. Cohen will present information for each species on identification tips, edible portion(s), season(s) of availability and preparation methods, along with guidelines for safe and environmentally-responsible foraging.
