Summer Wild Edibles Walk at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust
Join Elizabeth Kligge at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust at 2 p.m. on August 18 for a Summer Wild Edibles Walk, part of their Walk in the Wild series. Attendees will discover the bounty that nature provides all around us each and every day in the form of roots, shoots, stems, leaves, fruits, seeds and bark. On this guided plant walk, participants will learn to identify and harvest wild edible, medicinal and utilitarian plants.
Whether one’s goal is to supplement and vary one’s diet, save money on groceries, or have a backup plan in the event of a survival situation, learning wild plants will change the way one perceives the world.
Kligge grew up gardening and exploring the local wild places near Reading, Pennsylvania. She first learned about wild plants from her parents, near the creek that runs through their land and eventually went on to study primitive survival and teach her own workshops across the United States. She is an avid naturalist with a particular interest in tracking, hunter-gatherer and homesteading skills. She is also a certified permaculture designer.
Attendees are asked tomeet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road, in Blackwood Terrace. There is an additional small parking lot available at the end of Rankin Avenue, one block from Pine Avenue. Carpooling is recommended.
