Join us for a walk and talk led by Jim Merkel, one of Waldo county’s wild edibles experts and practitioners. Learn to find, identify and ethically harvest over a dozen common plants that grow in our forests and meadows, along creeks and bogs, and in our yards and gardens.

We will discuss ethical harvesting and the nutritional benefits of wild plants. Please bring a notebook where you can press samples and take notes. Sponsored by Sheepscot Wellspring Land Alliance and Sheepscot Valley Conservation Association.
