Fall Foraging Workshops
Join us for a foray around campus on October 10th from 3:00-5:00 PM to identify, gather, and eat wild edible foods.
Registration Required. Email email@example.com to save a spot.
Led by our Coordinator of Campus Gardens Dan Bensonoff, our Fall Foraging Walks will help you to identify the abundance around you right on campus. We'll learn about the ethics and sustainability of wild harvesting as well as some of the nutritional profiles of the foods we find. Possible wild edibles for this walk may include: black walnuts, acorns, hickory nuts, wild apples, primrose root, daylily tubers and more. Don't forget to register to participate!
