Transition Brockville, Brockville Public Library / 19 June 2018

Did you know you can sauté young day lily shoots in butter for a delicate addition to a meal in spring? Or that the berries of the sumac make a lovely lemonade in the heat of summer?

Parts of many plants in our flower gardens and in the wild are edible. Transition Brockville’s next presentation is a workshop on food foraging, Sunday, June 24, at 2 p.m. in the Brockville Public Library.

We’ll talk about the almost-lost art of finding food in unexpected places, as well as things to keep in mind when foraging. We’ll have actual plants people can eat, photos of other plants, links to sites for more information – even a recipe or two.

If you have experience in foraging for certain foods, your stories will be a welcome addition to the workshop. Try to bring a photo, or the actual plant, and tell what it is, where it can be found, when its edible part is ready, and how it can be used.

We’ll take notes and then post the information from the workshop on the Transition Brockville website.

All with an interest in food foraging are welcome at this free public presentation. Refreshments will be served; donations are appreciated.
