Come explore the grounds at the Extension Education Center and learn about the value of woodlands and fields in a new way. Presenters Tusha Yakovleva, Rob Handel, and Tracey Testo will be your guides to discovering wild edibles in your surroundings. Participants will learn what is available on a seasonal basis as well as how to collect food without disturbing or endangering a plant population. Recommendations will also be given on how to safely collect food with the help of local resources and experts. Following the walk, we will move inside for a cooking lesson with Chef Rob where you will learn how to incorporate these wild foods into a meal. Locally foraged goods will be made available for samples and snacking during a Q and A to wrap up this fabulous day. Foraging is a great way to get to know your land as a resource for local foods, can be a wonderful family activity and comes with a greater understanding of our interactions with the natural world. Cost is $25.00 per person. Register online at or call CCE at 518-622-9820
