Wild Edible Plants: Delicious and Nutritious Native and Invasive Plants
Frank Hyman, Cottage Garden Landscaping
Wild edible plants can be found year-round in the Piedmont. The fields and forests offer delicious plants like wintergreen, trout lily, Mayapple, pawpaw, partridge berry, and many others. You can also find invasives like knotweed and garlic mustard. They’re delicious too—so if you can’t beat ’em, eat ’em!
Professional forager and foraging columnist for Paleo magazine Frank Hyman will share a slideshow featuring a year’s worth of delicious and nutritious edibles that can be found in the Piedmont.
This class includes a one-page handout and plenty of time for Q&A and sample plants to pass around. Learn more about Frank at www.frankhyman.com.
