Northeast Foraging: 120 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Beach Plums to Wineberries. 
Tuesday May 6, 2014 – 6:30 pm,The Central Park Arsenal
Presented by Leda Meredith, author and wild forager
The Northeast is rich in wild edible plants, even in urban areas. Not only can a forager find free food and gourmet ingredients – some of which are either pricey at markets or simply can’t be found for sale – but she or he can interact with the local ecosystem in a way that impacts it beneficially. Learn about some of the edible plants that are growing right at your doorstep, as well as how to harvest them sustainably and prepare them deliciously.
