Westport is home to over 70 species of edible wild plants, some of which are more nutritious and flavorful than their cultivated counterparts.

Join the Westport Land Conservation Trust and Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten, for a two-hour ramble around Westport Town Farm to learn about at least 18 species of edible wild plants. Keys to the identification of each species will be provided, along with information on edible portions, seasons of availability, and preparation methods, as well as guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging.

Advance registration is required for this program–no exceptions. Space is limited! This event is free with a suggested donation of $10 per participant.

Cost: $10 suggested donation
