An abundant, free food supply surrounds us here in New England, much of it in your own backyard and along public hiking trails. Learn to identify and prepare wild-harvested plants and mushrooms in “Foraging for Wild Edibles”. Join Sandy Littell, an experienced naturalist and nutritionist, on a light hike around Glover’s Ledge as she introduces you to the variety of seasonally available foods and their many health benefits. Bring a basket and leave with a tasty sampling of nature’s wild growing mushrooms, greens, berries, and teas!
Glover’s Ledge, a public property owned by Antioch University and located in Langdon at 212 Cheshire Turnpike, offers a Class 1 hike (trails mostly maintained with slight inclines). Students should wear appropriate footwear (sneakers or light hikers). The class will meet and gather at the Mill Hollow Works workshop at the same location, before heading out for the hike.
