Foraging with Sam Thayer

August 21 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Foraging with Sam Thayer

At the workshop, you’ll join Sam Thayer for a hands-on day of botany, foraging, and feasting. We’ll be exploring the varied landscape of Riveredge to learn about the edible plants of prairies, forests, lawns, wetlands, and everything in between. Of course, you’ll learn to identify these plants, but we’ll also discuss their ecology—so you know how to find them, and how to use them responsibly. Read more about Sam Thayer below.
