This workshop is for folks who want to go deeper with wild edible & medicinal plants. Explore the diverse plant life at Chestnut Ridge with Community Herbalist Sarah Sorci. We�ll get acquainted with WNY plants that prefer sunny lawns, water�s edge, shady woodlands, and the spaces in between.
You�ll also sample a few of her favorite dishes and preparations made with nutritious wild greens! You�ll receive recipe sheets to take home.
You�ll leave feeling comfortable identifying a range of useful plants. You�ll know whether there are poisonous look-alikes to watch out for in our region. We�ll discuss environmental contamination considerations when harvesting wild plants, such as pesticide application and lead in soils near older buildings. Sustainable harvesting considerations will also be addressed.
