Wild History Foraging Walk + Wild Food Tasting

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday October 07

2:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

Join Piedmont Picnic Project for a Wild History Foraging Walk + Wild Food Tasting at Prairie Ridge Ecostation. We’ll learn more about edible wild plants that grow in a prairie environment in North Carolina, hear stories about local Raleigh history related to the prairie, and then taste dishes made from the same plants we learn about that day!  The picnic will include pre-foraged plants of the same kind seen on site, but no plants will be foraged directly from the ecostation.  We will review foraging guidelines and safety as well as instruction on plant uses and identification. For the light picnic you can expect wild tea, local bread, wild jams, jellies, and pickles, wild greens, and a wild treat for dessert!

Pre-registration is required.
