Join wild edible and medicinal plant expert, Leda Meredith, on a foraging tour of Millstone’s 75 acres. Learn how to identify the area’s most common wild edibles, as well as best practices and tips for foraging safely and with minimal impact to the natural environment.
After exploring the property, we’ll gather at the farmhouse for tastes of Leda’s favorite recipes made with wild edibles and a discussion on how to incorporate foraged foods into your cooking.
In addition to being an expert forager, Leda is an ethnobotanist and instructor at the New York Botanical Garden and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. She is the author of two books, The Locavore’s Handbook: The Busy Person’s Guide to Eating Local on a Budget and Botany, Ballet, & Dinner from Scratch: A Memoir with Recipes and writes the food preservation guide for About.com.
The workshop is $30 per person and payment is required in advance to hold your spot. Space is limited so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 203.834.2605.
