Join Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of Wild Plants I Have Known… and Eaten, on a two-hour ramble through Essex County Greenbelt Association’s (ECGA) Cox Reservation in Essex to learn about the comestible qualities of at least two dozen plant species. Keys to the identification of each species will be provided along with information on edible portions, seasons of availability and preparation methods, along with guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging. Russ will have samples of foraged goodies for us to taste following the walk.
ECGA Executive Director, Ed Becker will introduce us to the significance of their work in Essex County and their Cox Reservation headquarters and property.
