About the event
Identifying wild plants is an ancient, invaluable human skill. Plants provide food, medicine, useful materials for tools, supplies and more. Indeed, humans worldwide have cultivated healthy relationships with wild plants, and all non-humans, for hundreds of thousands of years outside the realm of industrial civilization.
Join us for a walking tour of wild edible plants. We'll identify as many as we can find. We'll meet at the Eastern Cemetery (Congress Street and Washington Ave) and walk a short loop around the neighborhood. You may want to bring a notepad or a camera. We may provide some tasty snacks made from foraged ingredients!
