Foraging for Autumn Wild Edibles

September 17, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join local farmer, forager, educator, and special guest Sarah Lucas of Harlem Valley Homestead to learn how to forage for wild edible plants and mushrooms of the late summer/early autumn. Wild foods can be rich in antioxidants, electrolytes, anti-bacterials, and phytonutrients that industrial foods increasingly fail to provide. Whether for health, hunger, convenience or curiosity, come and meet some of your backyard resources as Sarah shows us how to find, identify, and responsibly harvest wild edibles this time of year. We will be hiking Great Hollow’s trails, so be sure to wear proper footwear. No dogs, please. Registration is $15 per person and you must sign up in advance by emailing Sarah at
