On Friday, August 22, from 2:00-5:00pm, the Cobscook Community Learning Center will offer a wild plant foraging workshop with well known Maine plant author Tom Seymour. The workshop incorporates a digital presentation featuring wild edible plants lasting approximately one hour followed by a question-and-answer session. Following the presentation, the class will walk local trails where Tom will find and identify useful wild plants and discuss their uses.
