Wild Edibles with guest Elizabeth Sangree
Throughout history, humans have relied on the natural landscape to provide healthful sustenance. Though we are no longer hunter-gatherers, learning about the free wild edible and medicinal plants all around us can be incredibly enriching and wonderful in helping us feel linked to the past. Beyond that, learning about using plants as food is an incredible opportunity to understand the bounty and beauty of our local landscape. Come join naturalist Elizabeth Sangree to learn all about the wild edible and medicinal plants that grow all over the Goodwin property!
