Description: Worcester County is home to over 100 species of edible wild plants, some of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts. Join wild foods enthusiast Russ Cohen, author of Wild Plants I Have Knownand Eaten, for a 90-minute program covering at least three dozen of the tastiest species the region has to offer. These range from plants everyone knows well, like Daisies and Dandelions, to plants they may never have even heard of, like Calamus and Carrion Flower. Russ talk will also cover about a dozen of the easiest-to-recognize edible mushroom species, ranging from morels in the spring, Black Trumpet Chanterelles in the summer and Hen of the Woods in the fall. Russ will present information for each species on identification tips, edible portion(s), season(s) of availability and preparation methods, along with general guidelines for safe and environmentally-responsible foraging. Russ will also include a few details regarding some native edible plants he has grown successfully from seed, and the partnerships he has made with conservation groups and others to add edible native plants to their landscapes.
