Discovery Lecture Series: Wild Edibles
Discover the wonderful world of wild edible plants! Educator, naturalist, nutritionist, and wild plant expert Debbie Naha will present an inspiring PowerPoint slide show, followed by a fun outdoor foraging foray. From greenbrier to violets, the springtime fields and woods are filled with an abundance of wild edibles. This program will cover plant identification, safety and look-alike plants, sustainable harvesting, and incorporating wild plants into culinary dishes. We’ll also learn just how good these plants are for us, nibble a few choice plants, and take home a few “wild” recipes!

Join the Fanwood Environmental Commission on an “Edibles Walk” to find those plants that are hiding in plain view.  Educator, naturalist, nutritionist, and wild plant expert Debbie Naha will lead us.  Ms. Naha is a featured walk leader at the annual Union County Bio-Blitz held each June.  She will point out those plants that can be harvested for salads and snacks (and perhaps a few you shouldn’t touch) and just might share some of her secret “wild” recipes. Meet at the entrance to the Fanwood Nature Center.
