There is so much joy to be found in nature’s abundance…
Come along with Daniel Woody, a leader of the Raleigh-Triangle Wild Food Foragers organization, and an incredibly seasoned forager and gardener. He has been leading foraging excursions all over the triangle area for years and knows all the best ways to safely and accurately identify what delicious and fun plants and fungi you can find and take home to try for yourself.
With warmer temperatures and sunny skies, the flowers are popping!
We will be collecting and identifying spring wildflowers as well as sharing knowledge on their nutritional and medicinal value as well as their natural beauty. During the event, we will clean and process the flowers into syrups and jams for the participants to take home for themselves. Some of the flowers we plan to harvest include violets, clover, henbit, purple deadnettle, dandelion, crocus, and bluebells. We will also be on the lookout for spring greens like chickweed and plantain that can be used in salads.
