Join local wild food enthusiast and forager, Dan Lipow, for a moderately paced hike to search for seasonally available wild food. Dan will share his knowledge of edible plants and fungi as frequent stops are made to learn about and collect nature’s bounty. Mushrooms, roots and greens will hopefully fill the bags and containers you bring with you.
Note: Bring bags or containers, as well as plenty of water.
Proceeds from the hike will benefit SFNNJ’s school and urban garden fund.
