Join the Downeast Lakes Land Trust for a wild food gathering weekend. Harvesting wild food is the oldest and most basic subsistence activity of humankind, but today these skills are almost lost. Reconnect, and develop a deep appreciation and understanding of the natural world by exploring wild edibles.
Participants can attend the free evening program on Saturday August 23 to learn the basics of wild plant identification and preparation with forager and author, Tom Seymour. Tom will then lead a morning foraging hike on Sunday August 24 in the Farm Cove Community Forest. Register in advance by contacting the Downeast Lakes Land Trust at 207-796-2100 or firstname.lastname@example.org for the Sunday hike which will cost $15.
