Wild Edibles

April 15, 2011

At the Inwood Greenmarket

Sat. April 23rd, 10am-1pm

The Nature Place will display some of the wild edible plants that await foragers within the city limits! Paul Tappendon, expert wild food forager who works with us camp, will be on hand to talk about identifying these plants, their history and uses. Many are the wild beginnings of vegetables we might find being sold at the market! In addition there will be hands-on activities focusing on the life cycle of plants from seed to harvest. We will examine the development of seeds, sprouts and plants with magnifiers, and we will grind whole grains by hand to make flour.

Location: Isham Street & Seaman Avenue, New York, NY
