Classroom Presentation: Edible Wild Plants and Fungi of Autumn
September 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us at the deKoven House Community Center on Thursday, September. 28th at 6:00 P.M. for a presentation about “Foraging Edible Wild Plants and Fungi of Autumn.”
Autumn is a time of bounty and harvest for woodland creatures and foragers alike: nuts are falling to the forest floor, fruits are ripening and scenting the crisp fall air, roots and tubers are thickening up in anticipation of sustaining the plants through the tough winter, and edible fungi can be found in astounding amounts. Learn how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare the wild foods of autumn, from acorns through minty wintergreen leaves, including golden honey mushrooms and maitake, the “dancing mushroom”. Join The 3 Foragers as they teach the edible plants and fungi of autumn with their original photos and recipe ideas in an educational slideshow.
The 3 Foragers are a family from southeastern Connecticut who have been identifying, photographing, and cooking with the edible plants and fungi of New England for more than 17 years. Their blog, Facebook page, and book all focus on family-friendly, environmentally sustainable harvest of both our native and invasive species of plants, and ways to incorporate these foods into your diet with original recipes.
Note: We are also offering an additional Forage Walk on September 30. This is a separate event from the presentation. You must sign-up separately if you plan on attending the Forage Walk. Space is also limited to the first 25 adults for the walk at a $10 fee.
