The Granite State is home to over 100 species of edible wild plants, some of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts. Connect with over 40 of the tastiest species the region has to offer - ranging from plants everyone knows, like Daisies and Dandelions, to plants you may never have even heard of, like Calamus and Carrion Flower. Join us for a slide show that covers identification tips, edible portion(s), season(s) of availability and preparation methods, along with general guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging.  Learn about native edible plants raised from seed and partnerships with conservation groups to add edible native plants to the landscape. 

Speaker: Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of Wild Plants I Have Known...and Eaten
