Foraging Urban Wild Edibles at Prairiewoods
- 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.
- All Ages
Come walk with us! Join Jen Kardos and Fred Meyer at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) as we meander and munch and learn to identify the most common wild edibles found in an urban backyard, as well as cultivated herbs and berries integrated into Prairiewoods’ Garden of Eat’n. We will create and sample simple delicious snacks and drinks by blending our foraged bounty with familiar veggies and culinary herbs. Recipes, informational handouts and book recommendations will be provided. Planned dishes include a detoxing greens drink, foraged pesto and a juneberry crisp. Please dress for hands-on, outdoor learning. Tell us at registration if mobility accommodations may be needed, as we will cover quite a bit of ground during the class. The cost is $15, and registration and payment are required by Friday at noon. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
