Discover and Harvest Wild Spring Edibles at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust
Elizabeth Kligge invites you to join her at 2 p.m. on May 20 for a Walk in the Wild at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust. Attendees are asked to meet at the Willoughby House.
Kligge grew up gardening and exploring the local wild places near Reading, Pennsylvania. She eventually went on to study primitive survival and teaches workshops across the United States. She is an avid naturalist with a particular interest in tracking, hunting and gathering, and homesteading skills. She is also a certified permaculture designer.
The relaxing, guided plant walk will enable attendees to discover the bounty of edibles that nature provides in the form of roots, shoots, stems, leaves, fruits, seeds and bark. Attendees will learn to identify and harvest wild edible, medicinal and utilitarian plants. Safety and the caretaker’s method of gathering will also be discussed. Whether the goal is to supplement and vary your diet, save money on groceries or have a backup plan in the event of a survival situation, learning about wild plants will change the way one perceives the world.
Cost: Free. Location: 340 Pine Ave., Deptford, NJ. For more information, call Charles White at 856-217-9138.
