Foraging with Russ Cohen
Thursday, May 28 at 6:30 pm
The area in and around Pepperell is home to over 70 species of edible wild plants, some of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts, and dozens of species of edible mushrooms. Join Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of Wild Plants I Have Known...and Eaten, for a 90-minute slide show entitled "Edible Wild Plants and Mushrooms in and around Pepperell". It will cover over 50 of the tastiest species the region has to offer. Russ will also bring along handouts and a foraged goodie for people to taste. Funded by the Friends of the Library.
