Framingham: Edible wild plants walk at Stearns Farm

Framingham – Sudbury Valley Trustees (SVT) will be holding an edible wild plants walk Tuesday, Sept. 9, from 4:30-7 p.m., at Stearns Farm in Framingham. Russ Cohen, Massachusetts Department of Fish & Game Riverways Program, foraging expert & author of “Wild Plants I Have Known… and Eaten,” will be the walk leader.



Stearns Farm and its adjacent woodlands are home to more than 30 species of edible wild plants, many of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts. Join Cohen on a late afternoon/evening ramble through the farm (and, if time permits, the adjoining woods) to learn about at least 18 species of edible wild plants.



Pending favorable weather conditions, several edible mushroom species may be encountered as well. Keys to the identification of each species will be provided, along with information on edible portions, seasons of availability, and preparation methods, as well as guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging.



The walk is free for SVT members and $10 for non-members. To register or for more information, visit www.sudburyvalleytrustees.org or call 978-443-5588.
