Event Description: 

The 3 Foragers return to Goodwin State Forest for a spring foraging event.  Plants are growing and blossoming and now is a great time for foragers to learn what grows in our wilderness. There will be a demonstration followed by a walk in the woods as they point out all the wild edibles in the Connecticut wilderness.

The 3 Foragers are a family from southeastern Connecticut who have been identifying, photographing, and cooking with the edible plants and fungi of New England for more than 10 years. Their blog, Facebook page, and newly published book all focus on family-friendly, environmentally sustainable harvest of both our native and invasive species of plants, and ways to incorporate these foods into your diet with original recipes.
